The Daily Mail reports that Spain's king Juan Carlos today apologised for going elephant-hunting in Africa while everyday people in his country endure a severe economic crisis. In an unprecedented act of royal contrition, the monarch said: 'I am very sorry. I made a mistake. It won't happen again.' This admission came after calls grew that he be stripped from his honorary presidency of the Spanish branch of the World Wildlife Fund.
The king looks sheepish as he walks with crutches while leaving
the Madrid Hospital where he was operated after a hip fall.
