MADRID - Spain's King Juan Carlos I said he was worried about high youth unemployment and urged Spaniards to stick together to combat an economic crisis, in an interview to mark his 75th birthday after a year of scandal for the royal family.

The king was widely respected for overseeing Spain's transition to democracy in the 1970s but last year his popularity slumped after he was forced to apologize for going on an elephant hunting trip to Botswana as his country was mired in financial crisis.

The interview, broadcast on national television late on Friday, did not mention the trip or his son-in-law, who is under investigation for embezzlement.
