Protesters clash with police in Barcelona after Puigdemont arrested in Germany

Protesters in Catalonia clashed with police last night after the Catalan leader, Carles Puigdemont was arrested in Germany. 

A European arrest warrant against Mr Puigdemont was ordered and reissued last week by Spain for sedition and rebellion. 

Mr Puigdemont was crossing through Germany on his way from Denmark to Belgium. 

He has been living away from Spain since shortly after the Catalonian parliament declared independence in October 2017. 

Over 55,000 protesters gathered in Barcelona, decrying the German authorities actions.
