Military honours "requested" for Franco

  • Including the singing of the national anthem and firing of cannon

The family of General Franco, who are opposed to his reburial away from the Valle de los Caídos Spanish Civil War memorial, have reportedly identified another site for the late dictator if the government goes ahead with its plan. They say they want him buried in the family tomb in the crypt of the Almudena Cathedral, in the centre of Madrid.

There are also reports that the seven grandchildren of Franco are asking for him to be reburied with military honours, including the singing of the national anthem and firing of cannon.
