Three people, including two national police officers, were killed in a shooting at a country house in eastern Spain on Thursday, officials said.

"Two civil guards and a civilian" died during the incident at an isolated home in a rural area of the Teruel province around 6:00 pm (1700 GMT), a local official told AFP.

Spain's interior minister named the two dead officers in a tweet:
