Final rest for Franco’s victims

DESCENDENTS of Franco’s victims will finally get to bury their loved ones.

Malaga’s government has allocated 6,000 euros to study the excavation of common graves in the Las Torres castle in Alora.

Around 170 Republic sympathisers are believed to be buried in the castle.

Most of them were shot in repressions shortly after the fall of Malaga in early 1937.

The families of the victims have now formed a group that will supervise the exhumations and reburials.
