Former Catalan Leader Detained by German Cops
German police have detained Carles Puigdemont, the former leader of Catalonia, in another blow to the Spanish regionâ€™s independence movement.
Mr. Puigdemont was driving in Germany on Sunday morning, en route from Denmark, when police detained him on an international arrest warrant issued by a Spanish judge. The judge had charged Mr. Puigdemont and other separatist leaders on Friday with rebelling against the Spanish state when they declared Catalonia an independent republic in October.
