Protests have turned violent in Spain for a second day after thousands in Barcelona and Madrid demanded the release of rap artist Pablo Hasel, who had barricaded himself at a university.
He has been jailed following a 2018 conviction for insulting the monarchy and state institutions because of his tweets and lyrics.
Hasel’s case has raised public alarm over the prosecution of speech crimes in Spain.
