Spain: Police curbs Barcelona voters with rubber bullets as referendum violence escalates

Security forces fired rubber bullets at voters in Barcelona, Sunday, as clashes over the Catalan independence referendum continued throughout the morning. Several voters were injured as the violence escalated, resulting in some being transferred to nearby hospitals by ambulances. More than 5 million Catalans are expected to cast their votes in 2,315 polling stations across Catalonia and more... Еще than 200 stations in Barcelona alone. Referendum supporters have braced for a contentious day, following crackdowns by Spanish authorities on polling stations, arrests of Catalan officials and the suspension of the vote by Spain's Constitutional Court over the last weeks.
