Spanish police fired rubber bullets and baton-charged protesters as clashes erupted for a second night in a row at demonstrations against the arrest of rap artist Pablo Hasel. Many protesters threw objects at officers and used rubbish containers – setting many alight – and overturned motorbikes to block streets in both Madrid and Barcelona and other cities. Many shop windows were smashed in the demonstrations.
