Spain summons French ambassador over wine lorry attack

The foreign ministry in Madrid has summoned France’s ambassador after French farmers seized Spanish lorries and drained their cargo of wine. Spain said the attack by the French protesters was a “flagrant violation of various basic principles” of the EU. On Monday, farmers protesting against unfair competition attacked the lorries at a border crossing. The farmers blame falling food prices on foreign rivalry, supermarkets and distributors.
