MADRID (Reuters) - Spanish dictator Francisco Franco’s remains arrived by helicopter on Thursday at the Mingorrubio cemetery north of Madrid, where they are to be reburied after being exhumed from a state mausoleum.

His family plans to hold a private service during the reburial inside the family vault, where Franco’s wife Carmen Polo is buried.
