People queue to enter an unemployment registry office in Madrid, Friday Oct. 26, 2012. Spain's National Statistics Institute says the country's unemployment rate rose around 0.4 percentage points in the third quarter on the previous three months to 25 percent with 85,000 people more joining the ranks of the unemployed between July and September, taking the total to 5.78 million. Spain is under pressure to ask for outside aid to help deal with its debts. The country is in its second recession in three years. It has already been granted a euro 100 billion ($130 billion) bailout facility for its troubled banks while many of its regional government are also in bad financial shape. (AP Photo/Paul White)
