An article describing police use of force towards protesters in Barcelona has run with the Headline "Spanish protesters clash with police over clean-up", suggesting that there was violence from both sides. A video clip on the article goes to show police using batons against protesters who are standing or sitting on the street. The article also goes on to say that "violence breaks out" and "trouble erupted" without specifying who the violence/trouble was targeted at.
Trouble erupted when thousands of supporters arrived and blocked access roads. Police cleared routes out of the square by using batons, reportedly injuring 99 people and arresting two.
