Enrol in EOI Cartagena!


Spanish News in English

Dear readers,

The eruption on Sunday of a new volcano on the Canary Island of La Palma caught the world's attention this week. While there were no victims from the spectacular explosion and subsequent rivers of lava in the area, hundreds of people have been left homeless as the molten rock steamrolled its way over their houses. EL PAÍS was on the scene to speak to the residents, authorities and even tourists who were on the island this week.

Meanwhile, in Italy there was surprise news of the arrest of former Catalan premier Carles Puigdemont, who has been wanted by the Spanish justice system since he fled the country in 2017 in the wake of the unilateral secession attempt. His lawyer claimed on Friday that the European arrest warrant had been suspended.

And finally, there was more positive data from the coronavirus pandemic, with more than 76% of Spanish residents now fully vaccinated and the 14-day incidence of the virus steadily falling. Now the central government and the regions are grappling with the problem of an oversupply of vaccines, and are working carefully to avoid their expiration before use.

Spanish New in English

Dear readers,

This week the Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez announced a plan to bring down the soaring cost of electricity bills by reducing the “extraordinary profits” of energy companies and redirect these to consumers. The measure has outraged the industry, which has threatened to take legal action.

In coronavirus news, the incidence rate has dropped below 100 cases per 100,000 inhabitants for the first time since June 25. The improving situation has led some regional governments to relax remaining restrictions on social life and business opening hours.

And finally, authorities have warned of a possible volcanic eruption on the Canary Island of La Palma. The warning comes after more than 4,200 tremors were recorded in the area near Teneguía volcano.

Spanish News in English EL PAÍS

Dear readers,

There was good news regarding the coronavirus pandemic in Spain this week. As the cumulative incidence of the virus continues to fall, the country moved out of the "high risk" level for the first time in two months. However, experts remain cautious and will be watching the figures carefully in the coming weeks given the start of the new school year and the return to the workplace for many employees.

Elsewhere, there was tragedy in Málaga province, after a firefighter lost his life during efforts this week to extinguish a blaze that may have been started deliberately.

And there was a highly controversial case of an alleged homophobic attack, which saw a young gay man have an offensive slur carved into one of his buttocks with a knife. It later emerged, however, that the supposed victim had invented the story in order to conceal an infidelity from his partner.
