Catalan president calls for end of unrest: 'This must end now'
Catalan president Quim Torra appeared on TV on Wednesday night to call for an end to the chaotic scenes taking over the streets of Barcelona and other major cities in the last two nights: "I call for calm and serenity. The independence movement is and has never been violent. We condemn violence, as we have always done. We can’t afford to have these incidents in the streets of our country. This must stop now."
