BRUSSELS (AP) - Small groups of opposing protesters in the Spain-Catalonia political crisis are demonstrating outside the building where the ousted regional president has just spoken.

The pro-independence protesters waved Catalan "estelada" independence flags while the pro-union protesters held up Spanish national flags. Chants of "Long live Spain" and "Long live Catalonia" rose up from the crowd.

Police are providing security outside the Brussels Press Club, where ousted Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont just spoke, and there were no signs of trouble among the noisy protesters.
