Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has admitted to MPs that he made a "mistake" in trusting a disgraced former colleague.

But he said that claims he was corrupt were "lies and manipulations", and defied calls for his resignation.
Mr Rajoy is appearing in parliament to answer claims over illegal payments from a slush fund run by the Popular Party's ex-treasurer, Luis Barcenas.

The claims sparked widespread anger and anti-government protests in a country hit by recession and unemployment.
