BARCELONA (Reuters) - Catalan pro-independence demonstrators clashed with riot police in the centre of Barcelona on Tuesday in a second day of protests over Monday’s jailing of nine separatists by the supreme court over their role in a failed secession bid.

Police charged on protesters when they tried to kick down security fences around Spanish government buildings in the region and hurled cans and flares at the police. Some were seen tackled to the ground, Reuters witnesses said.
