Spanish police fire rubber bullets injure several Barcelona voters

Riot police fire volleys of rubber bullets to remove voters trying Sunday to enter a Barcelona polling station and casting ballots for Catalan independence. Several were lightly injured. The earlier standoff between voters and police pushing them back from one of the polling stations suddenly erupted into the violence.  Several voters were lightly injured. Half an hour before voting, cops entered polling booths and seized the ballot boxes.

Organizers smuggled ballot boxes into some stations before dawn in black plastic bags. At a Barcelona school, pro-secession activists were told to use passive resistance if police acted to lock the polling booth.
