Spanish right-wing politician Alejandro Vidal-Quadras, a member of Spain’s conservative Popular Party and former European Parliament member, served in various political capacities for three decades. The 78-year-old was targeted in a gun attack by two unknown men on a motorbike near his home in central Madrid. The broad daylight incident resulted in a facial injury, leading to a surgery where doctors confirmed a fractured jawbone.
Following the surgery, Vidal-Quadras is in stable condition in the intensive care unit. The police are investigating the incident, examining surveillance footage and witness accounts to identify the assailants. No immediate arrests have been made.
