Spanish politician died of heart attack after corruption testimony

Spanish politician died of heart attack after corruption testimonyA leading Spanish senator and ex-mayor of Valencia, Rita Barbera, has died of a heart attack at 68, BBC.

On Monday, she testified before the Supreme Court over claims of money-laundering by the ruling Popular Party (PP) during her 24 years as mayor.

Paramedics tried to resuscitate her for half an hour after receiving an emergency call from a Madrid hotel at about 07:00 local time (06:00 GMT).

The Supreme Court began investigating Ms Barbera in September.

Spain's parliament held a minute's silence for the senator, and political colleagues paid their respects on social media.
