Newsweek International - - CONTENTS - PAU BAR­RENA

Po­lice of­fi­cers stand guard on Septem­ber 29 af­ter clashes with Cata­lan sep­a­ratists left at least 14 peo­ple in­jured. Ri­ot­ers sprayed col­ored pow­der and tossed eggs at of­fi­cers, who re­sponded with ba­tons and shields. The vi­o­lence ig­nited two days be­fore the Oc­to­ber 1 an­niver­sary of Cat­alo­nia’s in­de­pen­dence ref­er­en­dum, which led to a bru­tal govern­ment crack­down and Spain’s worst po­lit­i­cal cri­sis in a decade.
