Spain's Royal Couple Join Families and Friends of Bus Crash Victims at Funeral in Murcia

The King and Queen of Spain attended the funeral of the victims of Saturday's bus crash near Bullas in the south-eastern region of Murcia. The bus was returning from a pilgrimage to Santa María Maravillas de Jesús in Madrid when it left the road and rolled down a steep embankment, killing 14 people and injuring 28.

King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia offered their sympathies and spoke with mourners before thanking rescue workers for their efforts during the horrific tragedy.

Only parish priest Miguel Conesa was not buried at Bullas, being instead buried in his home village of Espinardo.
