Spanish elections: Socialists win amid far-right surge

Spain"s governing Socialists won the most seats in Sunday"s election, but fell short of a majority - and right-wing parties made major gains.
The conservative Popular Party came in second, and far-right Vox more than doubled its seats to become the country"s third most-powerful party.
This is Spain"s fourth general election in as many years.
A previous vote in April ended with no clear majority, and the Socialists failed to form a coalition government.
This time, the Socialist party won 120 of the 350 seats - three fewer than in April"s vote. The PP has 88 seats, up from 66 in the previous poll, while Vox has 52 - up from just 24 in April.
