Spain's 'Kill Jews Fort' villagers vote in favour of name change

Published: 05.25.14, 23:55 / Israel News

The tiny Spanish village of Castrillo Matajudios, or "Kill Jews Fort" in English, on Sunday voted in favour of changing its name, Spanish media reported, as it cast off a vestige of Roman Catholic religious persecution from over 400 years ago.

 

Spain's El Pais newspaper said the motion to change the village's name had received 29 votes in favour, while 19 people had gone against it. Others did not participate in the referendum or returned blank voting slips. (Reuters)
