A SPANIARD has attempted to kill himself outside a job centre in Malaga.
The 36-year-old set himself alight at 1pm yesterday after pouring petrol on himself.
He was rushed to hospital with second degree burns to 63% of his body.
“He was clearly desperate after struggling in this existing recession,” said a local union boss.
It comes as Spain saw the biggest drop in the dole queue for six years with 100,000 people landing jobs ahead of the tourist season.
