Police arrest far-right extremist in plot to kill Spanish Prime Minister

Spanish police have arrested a far-right extremist with a history of mental illness in north-eastern Spain for plotting to assassinate the Prime Minister. Police uncovered a cache of sixteen firearms at the suspect’s home. The police were alerted by friends of the suspect who indicated that the suspect told them of his plans, apparently motivated by the Prime Minister’s plans to exhume the body of former Spanish and right-wing leader Francisco Franco.
