Nearly a half-million defiant Catalans came out on Saturday in Barcelona to support secession from Spain after the Madrid government triggered Article 155 of the 1978 Constitution. Catalonia's president, Carles Puigdemont, has accused the Spanish government of attacking its democracy by moving to take political control of the region. Puigdemont claimed Spain was taking the worst path since the dictatorship of Francisco Franco.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5dCwqjjbOs

Dozens of troops are killed in a gun battle in the western desert. Egypt’s police force have suffered their largest death toll after an attack in the Sinai Peninsula. A convoy with police and security forces were ambushed in the Egyptian desert. They were following a tip-off about a possible hideout of an armed group near the Bahariya oasis. At least 52 of them were killed and six more were wounded in a gun battle that followed.
Fifteen of the suspected attackers were also killed. Egypt has been under a state of emergency since a number of attacks targeted minority Coptic Christians earlier this year, killing scores of them.
A violent anti-government campaign in the Sinai has grown since the military overthrew democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood in mid-2013.
So, how is the Egyptian government dealing with recurrent attacks nationwide? Presenter: Jane Dutton Guests Timothy Kaldas, non-resident fellow at Tahrir Institute for Middle East Politics.
