    The number of evictions in crisis-hit Spain is turning into a national scandal, as a second homeowner committed suicide on the day a foreclosure order was served.

    53-year-old Amaya Egaña threw herself from her fourth floor appartment in the Basque town of Barakaldo.

    Three hundred and fifty thousand people are said to have lost their homes over unpaid mortgages since the crisis began.
