MADRID (Reuters) - A Spanish judge has not yet issued a European arrest warrant for ousted Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont and would most likely do so on Friday, a senior court source said on Thursday.

Puigdemont’s Belgian lawyer had previously said the warrant had already been issued. The reason for the differing accounts was not immediately clear.
