Whirlpools World

KING Felipe’s 51st birthday was marked in unconventional style after he made a surprise visit to Iraq to visit Spanish troops based there. He touched down in Baghdad on Wednesday, disembarking the royal plane in full military uniform. He gave a speech to members of the Toro Helicopter Task Force before going on to personally talk to some of the 500 Spanish soldiers based in Iraq, most of who are in Besmayah, about 45 kilometres outside of Baghdad. In the first visit to the country by a Spanish monarch in 40 years, he also made time for a meeting with Iraqi President Barham Salim.
