Former Spanish dictator Franco exhumed
The exhumation of Spain's former dictator Francisco Franco was a step towards reconciliation, acting Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Thursday, after the general's remains were removed from the state mausoleum where he was buried in 1975.

Around 500,000 people were killed in the 1936-1939 Civil War between Franco's nationalist rebels and left-wing Republicans. Many more were killed in the ensuing four decades of dictatorship resulting from Franco's victory.

The antagonism between the two sides remained during the transition to democracy in the 1970s, resulting in deep divisions between right and left.
