Twelve Catalan separatist leaders have gone on trial in Madrid over a failed independence bid that laid bare historical divisions and triggered Spain's biggest political crisis in decades.
Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont said that he hoped the case would give Spain the opportunity "to impose a fair sentence: that is, acquittal".
Flanked by hundreds of police, pro and anti-separatist demonstrators gathered outside the Supreme Court, where the defendants face charges of rebellion, sedition and misuse of public funds, which they all reject.
Al Jazeera's David Chater reports from Madrid.

What a coward Carles is leaving his co conspirators to take the consequences.

Nobody wants further division. Everybody wants to maintain present status quo.

They deserve hard punishment, they have been stealing lot of money from citizens and they are confronting catalonians against ones each other, they dont care about health system or goods for people, they only think in independence

Addressing crowds gathered in Tehran celebrate the 40th anniversary of the revolution that broke Iran free of US dominance, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran does not need and does not seek permission for its ballistic missile programme.
Thousands of Iranians rallied in Azadi (Freedom) Square in central Tehran to mark the 40th anniversary of the Islamic revolution and hear the president's remarks.
The Islamic Republic has disproven some American officials who said that it would not last 40 years and, on this year's anniversary, Iranians are promising continued resilience against what government officials have said is the most hostile US administration in decades.
