MADRID (Reuters) - The family of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco on Thursday left the Mingorrubio cemetery north of Madrid following a reburial ceremony for his exhumed remains.

The remains were earlier in the day removed from the state mausoleum where they had lain since Franco’s death in 1975.
