Po­lice in Barcelona have briefly clashed with Cata­lan sep­a­ratists who are protest­ing a rally by Spain’s na­tional po­lice forces in the Mediter­ranean city.

Cata­lan re­gional po­lice used ba­tons to drive back a group of sep­a­ratists in the city cen­ter Satur­day, stop­ping them from ad­vanc­ing to­ward a march by an as­so­ci­a­tion of Spain’s na­tional po­lice forces de­mand­ing higher pay.

In Septem­ber, a sim­i­lar protest by sep­a­ratists of an­other march by the same na­tional po­lice as­so­ci­a­tion ended in clashes with re­gional se­cu­rity forces. The vi­o­lent run-ins left 14 peo­ple in­jured and six ar­rests. (AP)
