Riot police clash with pro-independence protesters in Barcelona (WATCH LIVE)

Security forces have clashed with pro-independence demonstrators in one of the main squares of Barcelona, Sant Jaume. The officers were seen beating the protesters with batons.

Crowds took to the streets on Saturday to stage a counter-protest against a demonstration in support of the Spanish national police (Policia National) and National Guard (Guardia Civil) in Barcelona. The latter two unleashed a violent crackdown during last year’s independence referendum in Catalonia.

Dramatic pictures from Saturday’s rally show officers in riot gear facing off with pro-independence protesters before unleashing batons on them.
