37 injured in Barcelona protests

 

MADRID: Health authorities in northeastern Spain say 37 protesters have been injured during ongoing clashes with police at Barcelona’s airport. Tempers flared in Spain’s Catalonia region after the country’s Supreme Court found 12 separatist leaders guilty of illegally promoting Catalan independence. Nine received prison sentences. Regional police say they arrested two protesters – one at Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat Airport and another in the town of Mataro — for allegedly attacking officers.
