Demonstrators flood Barcelona in support of jailed separatist leaders

BARCELONA (Reuters) – Hundreds of thousands of Catalan independence supporters flooded the streets of Barcelona on Sunday calling for the release of jailed separatist leaders after a supreme court ruling frustrated their latest attempt to elect a regional leader. Around 350,000 demonstrators clogged several main city arteries waving flags and wearing yellow in support of separatist leaders jailed for their role in the region’s banned drive to split from Spain last year.
