El Pais article: Blood Debts of Albox
For those that read Spanish, El Pais has published a long article about two infamous gypsy families from Albox, the Pertolos and the Franceses.

Two members of the Pertolos family were gunned down last week in Olula del Rio while allegedly attempting to extort monies from the owner of a marble factory. The El Pais article delves into the history of the animosity between these two families that apparently has existed for since the 1920's.

Interesting reading.

I read the article last week in the Spanish press - it said the Guardia had been looking for one of these guys for 4 years - and didn't know where he was - They do now !
