Suicides over Spain's eviction law

Two suicides in Spain over eviction notices have led to calls for eviction law to be eased.

    Moments before Ameia Egana, aged 53, was to be evicted from her fourth floor apartment, she clambered over the balcony railing and jumped to her death.

    Police at the scene said she died on impact. It is the second suicide in Spain in a matter of weeks; a man facing eviction in Grenada was found hanging in his home.

    A local judge called to the scene said the law on evictions must be changed.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
