Battle for sunken treasure reaches Gibraltar

A court battle over treasure from an old Spanish shipwreck has reached Gibraltar, where descendants of the sunken cargo's owners are fighting to win back part of the booty from Spain.

The British-administered territory has been drawn into a tangled squabble between Spain, US treasure hunters and the Latin American descendants, in a case harking back to the days of the Spanish empire.
