Police and protesters clash over Barcelona squat

Clashes between Spanish police and protesters are continuing daily over the demolition of a well-known squat in Barcelona .

Police have now arrested a further eight people in violence which erupted when squatters were cleared from a public building occupied for 17 years by left-wing radicals.

On Monday, police forcibly removed the squatters who had chained themselves inside the building belonging to the local transport authority. It is to be demolished as part of a development project.
