45,000 pro-Catalan independence protesters descend on Brussels

Around 45,000 pro-Catalan independence protesters have taken to the streets outside EU institutions in Brussels in support of the separatist region's cause. The demonstration is partly in support of exiled and disputed president Carles Puigdemont, who has himself fled to the EU capital in Belgium and is resisting extradition attempts. The Thursday march is also aimed at putting pressure on the EU institutions to support the region's cause – support which has so far been totally absent.
