Protesters continued to block roads and railway lines in Barcelona, Spain, on Tuesday after mass demonstrations against the Spanish government a day earlier. A court sentenced nine Catalan separatist leaders to up to 13 years in prison on Monday, sparking the protests in the capital of the Catalonia region. Demonstrators gathered at the Barcelona airport, forcing the cancellation of at least 110 flights. More than 170 people, including 40 police officers, sustained injuries.
