SCRIPT
Civil unrest continued to unfold on the streets of Barcelona on Saturday for the sixth consecutive night as protesters carried on their demonstrations decrying the Spanish Supreme Court ruling jailing Catalan independence leaders, acts of looting also took place during the night.
Footage shows fires burning on the streets of the Catalan capital, demonstrators throwing projectiles at police and huge crowds of protesters staging a sit-in during a standoff with local police.
Acts of looting could be seen taking place Barcelona's Avinguda del Portal de l'angel. Police can be seen arresting suspected looters and damage to various stores is visible.
Spain's Supreme Court convicted nine independence leaders in total, including former Catalan Vice President Oriol Junqueras, for their role in the autonomous region's attempt to secede and holding an illegal independence referendum.
The sentence against the Catalan leaders unleashed a wave of protests and riots that reached its sixth consecutive day, leaving hundreds injured and dozens of detainees.
