Spanish anger over false E. coli cucumber accusation

The European Commission has warned against spreading "unjustified fears" over the source of Germany's E. coli outbreak.

The bug has killed 22 people and left more than 2,000 ill but officials still don't know how the bug contaminated food supplies.

One Spanish MEP, Francisco Sosa-Wagner, brandished a cucumber as he demanded compensation for his country's cucumber farmers.
