King Felipe met over the weekend with Spanish officials who helped evacuate people from Afghanistan following the Taliban’s takeover of the country.
His Majesty visited the Torrejón Air Base in Madrid after the last flight landed with Spaniards and Afghans who collaborated with allied forces.
Prince Felipe yesterday presided over the funeral of Sgt. David Fernández Ureña, a Spanish soldier who died in Afghanistan last Friday.
Media reports indicate that the Spanish Army service member was trying to neutralize an explosive when he died.
The funeral was held at a military facility in Zaragoza.
