    Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has asked Spain to apologise for the past killing of millions of its people - but that's been firmly rejected by its former colonial master.

    Despite Spain's refusal, the two countries have enjoyed close ties, with some analysts saying that's likely to continue.
