Crates of cucumbers are laid out after being unloaded from a truck in Torremolinos, southern Spain, Friday, June 3, 2011. Several tons of cucumbers were handed out free to the public in support of Spanish farmers, and in an attempt to show that they are safe for consumption. Spain says the German Chancellor has agreed to consider pushing for EU compensation for Spanish farmers after Germany erroneously blamed its vegetable produce for starting the E. coli outbreak that has now killed 18 people and sickened hundreds others.
