Court impounds properties of Spanish king's son-in-law

A court on Monday impounded 16 properties belonging to the son-in-law of Spanish King Juan Carlos in a corruption case that has embarrassed the royal family.

The court in Mallorca published a ruling ordering the seizure of properties owned by Inaki Urdangarin, husband of the king's daughter Cristina, to cover a 6.1-million-euro ($8.2 million) bond for his liability in the case.
