MADRID – A new Spanish daily hit the newsstands on Wednesday with colourful graphics, lots of photographs and an exclusive lead story identifying the new leader of the armed Basque separatist movement ETA.

"Publico", with an initial press run of 250,000 copies and national distribution, is aimed at younger readers, according to the publisher Mediapubli, the print arm of audiovisual media group Mediapro.

One of the new daily's editors, Jaume Roures, described the paper as "progressive, popular, leftist, pluralist (and) critical, but respectful."

The 64-page daily costs 50 cents, or half the price of the other Spanish newspapers. The Sunday edition is to cost 1 euro.

Along with the lead item identifying Javier López Peña as the new top ETA chief, Wednesday's edition featured a story about two Spaniards who claimed they had photographed a little girl they believed to be the missing Madelaine McCann.

One hundred and twenty journalists staff the paper which boasts ten foreign correspondents.
