Spain tightens border security before ECB summit

Spain has stepped up border security ahead of next week’s European Central Bank meeting in Barcelona amid fears that foreign activists will try to join locals in staging anti-austerity protests.

It has temporarily banned passport-free travel under Europe’s Schengen treaty.

The move follows violent incidents during Spain’s one-day general strike in March.
