    Malcolm Moore Thursday, January 25, 2007 Five hundred years after he was killed in battle, the remains of Cesare Borgia, the notorious inspiration for Machiavelli's The Prince, are to be moved into a Spanish church. Banned from holy ground by bishops horrified by his sins, the remains of the ruthless military leader lie, at present, under a pavement in Viana in northern Spain. Borgia was the illegitimate son of Pope Alexander VI, and was made a cardinal by his father at the age of 17. He was an accomplished murderer by 25 and had conquered a good part of Italy...

    ROME - After more than a year-long legal battle over the burial location of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco’s remains, on Friday the nation’s famed ‘Valley of the Fallen’ was officially closed ahead of the exhumation of the former general’s body. The Oct. 11 closure of the Valley took place a day ahead of Spain’s national day, Día de la Hispanidad, and the feast of Our Lady of the Pillar, Spain’s national patroness, both of which are celebrated on Oct. 12. Built upon Franco’s orders in the mid-20th century, the Valley of the Fallen is now a monument to some 34,000...

    John Kerry's comments on foreign leaders during 2004 election season resurface amid Trump-Ukraine controversy After former President Bill Clinton’s request for help from a foreign official resurfaced Monday, now it's John Kerry’s turn in the spotlight. On Tuesday’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host flashed back to a 2004 comment from Kerry, then a candidate for president, claiming foreign leaders told him how much they wanted him to oust then-President George W. Bush. “John Kerry has been talking to anyone who will listen about the president’s shocking behavior with Ukraine,” Carlson said on his show Tuesday night, before turning...

  • Franco exhumation: Spain's Supreme Court backs move to cemetery

    BBC ^ | September 24, 2019 | Staff
    Spain's Supreme Court has ruled that the remains of dictator Francisco Franco should be exhumed. It backed the Socialist government's plan to move the remains from a state mausoleum to a less controversial site. An appeal by Franco's family against the exhumation and proposing an alternative site was rejected. The issue has divided opinion in Spain, which remains haunted by the Franco era. He won the 1930s civil war and went on to rule Spain until 1975.

    When I was a young journalist decades ago, training to cover Washington, one of my mentors offered sage advice: When it comes to U.S. intelligence and diplomacy, things often aren’t what they first seem. Those words echo in my brain today, as much as they did that first day. And following the news recently, I realize they are just as relevant today with hysteria regarding presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s contacts with Ukraine’s government. The coverage suggests Giuliani reached out to new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s team this summer solely because he wanted to get dirt on possible Trump 2020 challenger...

    A 5,000-year-old monument has reappeared in Spain after being submerged at the bottom of a reservoir for 50 years. The megalithic site features 144 granite blocks which stand more than six-foot tall and has been dubbed 'Spanish Stonehenge'. Its similarity to the UNESCO World heritage site in Wiltshire is striking, but the Iberian version is made of smaller rocks. It was thought to be condemned to the history books in the 1960s when a Spanish general ordered the construction of a hydroelectric dam in Peraleda de la Mata, near Cáceres in Extremadura.

    For the first time in history, Spain is no longer a majority Catholic country For the first time in its history, Spain now has more atheists, agnostics, and non-believers than it does practicing Catholics, according to a new report by the Research Center of Spanish Sociology (CIS).While a third of Spaniards reported being Catholic, only 22.7 percent of them said that they attend mass and go to confession regularly. In Catalonia, just 10.9 percent of believers reported regularly attending mass and going to confession, while in Rojia, south of Basque country, about 40 percent of people are still practicing...

    In 1678, a Chaldean priest from Baghdad reached the Imperial Villa of Potosí, the world’s richest silver-mining camp and at the time the world’s highest city at more than 4,000 metres (13,100 feet) above sea level. A regional capital in the heart of the Bolivian Andes, Potosí remains – more than three and a half centuries later – a mining city today. Its baroque church towers stand watch as ore trucks rumble into town, hauling zinc and lead ores for export to Asia. Elias al-Mûsili – or Don Elias of Mosul, as he was known – arrived in 17th-century Potosí...

    ROME - The Vatican has responded to a formal protest by the Spanish government over a controversy regarding the remains of Gen. Francisco Franco, saying it never intended to meddle with Spain’s domestic affairs. In early July, Spain sent a formal protest to the Vatican after the papal nuncio in Madrid rebuked the Socialist government for “resuscitating” Franco through its efforts to move the former dictator’s remains. The deputy head of the Socialist caretaker government noted that the diplomat’s comments amounted to “interference” in Spanish affairs. Vatican spokesman Alessandro Gisotti clarified on Thursday that nuncio Archbishop Renzo Fratini - who...

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) criticized President Donald Trump’s effort to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall. Bennet said, “The president is acting like we are some weak, pathetic country. We have the ability to treat human beings humanely. We have the ability to lead our hemisphere in a discussion on how to deal with this refugee crisis.” He added, “We are a strong and powerful country. We supposed to lead humanity, not make our border a symbol of nativist hostility. That should be an embarrassment for everybody. The symbol of...

    A former U.S. Marine accused of breaking into North Korea's embassy in Madrid and assaulting diplomatic personnel was freed on $1.3 million bond in Los Angeles on Tuesday. As a condition of his release, Christopher Ahn must confine himself to his home in the Los Angeles suburb of Chino Hills ahead of his possible extradition to Spain and must wear an ankle monitor. “I spent a lot of time reading about you and I’m confident you’re going to do the right thing,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Jean Rosenbluth told Ahn, who had several family members in attendance at the hearing.
