Spain: King Felipe Decries Paris Attacks in Christmas Speech

Sunday, 27 December 2015 11:41 AM

MADRID (AP) — Spain's King Felipe VI, in his annual Christmas Eve speech, has decried the Paris attacks that killed 130 people and left hundreds wounded.

In a live TV address, the king called the Nov. 13 gun-and-bomb attacks as "authentic attacks on our model of co-existence and the most basic human values."

Felipe on Thursday also urged Spaniards to remain united as the nation faces an uncertain political future after an election Sunday that splintered the nation's traditional two-party system as two upstart parties won substantial support.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and his conservative Popular Party won the most votes but fell far short of a parliamentary majority. Rajoy is now trying to form a government but the opposition Socialist Party has rejected an alliance.
