Franco firing squad victims located in Gandía cemetery


Remains of nine victims of General Franco’s fascist dictatorship have been found in an unmarked grave in Gandía – and there could be more at the same site, according to the authorities.

José Albero, now 91, pinpointed the site his father and 61 others were executed.
