Violent protests rage in support of jailed rapper

-

BARCELONA, Spain — Protests in support of a jailed rapper turned violent for a sixth consecutiv­e night in Barcelona on Sunday.

Protesters mostly dressed in black have hurled stones and other objects at police officers standing guard outside the National Police headquarte­rs in the center of the Spanish city.

More than 100 people have been arrested from violent clashes with police since Pablo Hasel was arrested on Tuesday to serve a ninth-month prison sentence for his lyrics that insulted the Spanish monarch and praised terrorism violence.
