Barricades and rubbish containers were set on fire in Barcelona on Friday as protests decrying prison sentences for Catalonia's pro-independence leaders entered its fifth straight day.
Footage shows several fires on the streets of the Catalan capital and police firing tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters.
Spain's Supreme Court convicted nine independence leaders, 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 convicted leaders were given prison sentences ranging from nine to 12 years, which protesters have condemned as being disproportionately harsh.
