SPANISH poet and playwright Federico Lorca was executed on the orders of the military in Granada one month into the Spanish Civil War.
New documents written in 1965 but only revealed today, are the first official documents to record Lorca’s killing.
The report confirmed that Lorca was murdered in an area north of Granada under General Franco’s rule. However the site of his grave remains a mystery.
Lorca was arrested by police and had confessed to being homosexual and a practising Freemason before being executed.
