Seven dead, one seriously injured in crash in northern Spain

Seven people have been killed in a crash between two cars in northern Spain, officials said.

The collision happened at Pont de Molins, on the outskirts of Figueres, early on Saturday, the regional government of Catalonia's traffic department said on its Twitter account.

Figueres is 16 miles (25km) south of the border with France.

The Interior Ministry said all five occupants of a car with French licence plates were killed when the vehicle was hit side-on by another car in which two occupants died and one was seriously injured.

The ministry said not all the occupants had been identified but Spanish officials were in contact with French and Moroccan consulates.

Catalonia president Carles Puigdemont offered his "condolences and solidarity to the victims"
