Anger as Spanish police move on Barcelona protest camp

Anger over Spain's dire economic situation has prompted thousands of people to fill Barcelona's famous Plaza de Catalunya following an attempt by riot police to break up an anti-government protest camp there.

City authorities said they needed to empty the square, which is popular among football fans, ahead of Saturday's Champions League final between Barcelona and Manchester United.
