Catalan demonstrators throw rubbish bags near Spanish government headquarters

Hundreds of pro-independence protesters took to the streets of Barcelona for a seventh successive night, with anger over the jailing of Catalan separatist leaders showing little sign of abating. One large crowd blocked a road close to the Spanish government headquarters in Catalonia, throwing dozens of sacks of rubbish in front of stationary police vans. A smaller group shut off a major avenue to the east of the city. However, there was no sign of the violence that has shaken Barcelona in recent days, particularly, when masked youths set fire to hundreds of garbage bins and hurled rocks, stones and bottles at security forces.
