A few hundred protesters gathered at Barcelona's main train station on Saturday (November 16) in the latest show of dissent after a Spanish court handed stiff sentences to nine Catalan separatist leaders last month over their failed bid for independence in 2017.

Demonstrators poured into Barcelona Sants station, some staging a sit-in while a handful scuffled with police.

Authorities said no arrests were made and transit services were not disrupted.

Barcelona has seen weeks of protests - at times erupting into violence.

On Wednesday (November 13) Spanish police cleared out protesters who had trapped around 500 vehicles while blocking a major highway for more than 15 hours.
