In Spain, hundreds of thousands of people rallied in Barcelona Sunday in a massive unity rally opposing independence for the country’s Catalonia region. Organizers said nearly a million people attended the rally, while Catalan police put the number at 350,000. The rally came as Catalan leaders claimed about 90 percent of those who voted in a banned referendum a week ago supported independence. Spain’s government called the independence drive unconstitutional and ordered a police crackdown on the vote which left about 900 people injured.
