Police forces clashed with members of pro-independence action group Committees for the Defence of the Republic (CDR) in front of the National Police Headquarters in Barcelona on Saturday.
Around 10,000 people participated in what started out as a peaceful demonstration, but tensions rose and clashes ensued between protesters and police. Streets were blocked and fires were lit by protesters, to which police responded with tear gas and other projectiles.
