Spanish politicians accused of corruption

Prime minister Mariano Rajoy expected to face questions about graft allegations facing party members.

    Mariano Rajoy, Spain's prime minister, faces parliament on Wednesday for his "state of the nation" address.

    He is expected to face questions about whether he and his party were taking cash payments for years. More than 300 Spanish politicians, including a member of the royal family, are facing graft allegations of one form or another.
