Protests erupt in Spain

Madrid: The streets of Spain’s capital Madrid resounded with the honk of cars horns as thousands rallied in the city as part of a protest called by the far-right Vox party.

Protesters called for Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Deputy Prime Minister Pablo Iglesias to resign over their handling of the coronavirus crisis.

Spain, which imposed one of Europe’s toughest lockdowns on March 14, has started to ease restrictions, but Madrid and Barcelona have remained in lockdown for longer because of more severe coronavirus outbreaks.

“It is time to end the #stateofabuse that Pedro Sanchez and Pablo Iglesias are using to gag Spaniards,” Vox said in a statement, referring to a Twitter hash tag.

“It is time to make a big noise against the government of unemployment and misery that has abandoned our self-employed and workers.”

Spain to reopen to international tourism, restart football

Spain will reopen to international tourism from July, says Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.

He also announced that the country’s football league could return to action from June 8.

The country is emerging from one of Europe’s strictest lockdowns, implemented on March 14.
