The Ministerial Visit to Jimena

(Photos by Bur and TioJimeno)

Saturday’s visit by Spanish Minister of the Interior Alfredo Rubalcaba made the national and international media. Not because of the importance of the visit itself -which it undoubtedly was in local terms- but because of certain statements he made at a streetside press conference regarding the ETA terrorist group (More about that in another post).
