    A woman has been taken to hospital after dousing herself with flammable liquid and setting herself on fire in a bank in Spain. It happened in a town near the city of Valencia. No reason has been given for the woman's action although Spanish banks are being blamed for a wave of mortgage foreclosures, evictions and at least five default-related suicides in recent months.
