Spanish civil war veteran has bullet removed





An 88-year-old veteran of the Spanish Civil War has had a bullet removed from his shoulder almost seven decades after he was shot.

Faustino Olivera is recovering in hospital in Barbastro, in the northern Spanish region of Aragon, where doctors last week performed emergency surgery to remove a painful lump from his left shoulder.

They were astonished when they extracted a bullet fired from a Mauser 98.
