Spanish airport strike leaves passengers stranded World news guardian.co.uk: "Thousands of British holidaymakers have been left stranded in Spain after air traffic controllers walked out over working conditions.
The Spanish government has declared a state of emergency over the strike, which has left eight airports including Madrid closed across the country and stranded 330,000 international passengers.
The deputy prime minister, Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, said the controllers – who called in sick en masse – had been ordered back to work and could face charges and jail under the military penal code if they refused.
'We said that if the situation in the airports did not normalise we would call a state of emergency. It's clear that the situation has not normalised,' Rubalcaba said following an emergency cabinet meeting.
Airlines including Iberia and Ryanair have cancelled all Spanish flights until Sunday morning."
