Spanish expats 'angry' at vote to leave the EU

Expats living in Spain have said they are angry at the vote to leave the EU and fear for their future prospects living in the EU.

There will be no immediate changes to the circumstances for British expats in Europe, the prime minister said this morning.

However, their future is uncertain as they may no longer enjoy the right to live and work in EU countries.

John and Miriam, who relocated to Malaga 12 years ago, said they are "angry" at the vote to leave the EU.

Miriam said she has health conditions and the Brexit may mean she has to return to live in the UK to access healthcare.

John said: "I felt a real mix of shock and anger. Angry because, for me this the wrong result. I feel people who voted to exit voted for the wrong reasons."

A Frenchman has been arrested in Spain on suspicion of supplying the weapons that were used to kill five people at a kosher deli in Paris last year.

The 27-year-old man is from Sainte Catherine and was arrested in the Malaga area on Tuesday, in a joint operation with French police, Spain's interior ministry said in a statement.

Amedy Coulibaly shot dead a police officer and four hostages in the supermarket in January 2015, a day after two other gunmen killed 12 people in an attack on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper office in Paris.

At least 13 university students dead after Spain bus crash

The coach reportedly swerved onto the other side of the road and hit an oncoming car, injuring the two passengers.

The driver survived the crash and was taken to a local police station, Catalonia's regional interior minister Jordi Jane said.

The cause of the accident was not immediately clear but was most likely due to "human error", he said.

The victims of the crash early on Sunday morning were aged 22 to 29 and “the majority are Erasmus students of various nationalities”, Mr Jane said.

Erasmus university students are part of a European exchange programme.

The coach had been travelling from Valencia, on the last weekend of the Fallas festival, famous for its firework displays.

The nationalities of those who died in the crash are not yet known.

Catalonia's emergency services said in a statement that passengers on board included students from Hungary, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Czech Republic, New Zealand, Great Britain, Italy, Peru, Bulgaria, Poland, Ireland, the Palestinian Territories, Japan, Ukraine, Holland, France and Finland.

Local reports earlier put the death toll at 14.

Spain boss Vicente del Bosque has called up veteran Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz to his squad to face Italy and Romania.

Aduriz earned his one international cap in 2010 and has not featured since.

There is no place for Chelsea's Diego Costa, who isn't fully fit, as Spain plan for Euro 2016.

Del Bosque said: "If Costa was 100% fit he would have been picked. Situation the other day was not so serious - and we are not here to punish."
