Hundreds of thousands of separatist-minded Catalans have rallied in Barcelona to show their support for an independent nation that would break away from Spain.
Barcelona police estimated on their Twitter account that about 540,000 people attended the demonstration in support of a legally-binding referendum on secession.
Spain argues that an independent Catalonia would be ejected from the European Union and left out from using the euro currency.
Catalan National Day has long been used to mobilise the masses in support of secession from Spain, which has said any referendum on the issue would be unconstitutional.
The economically powerful Catalonia accounts for 18% of Spain's economic output. [source]

French Premier warns about radicalisation as boy is arrested

Updated
French police have arrested a 16-year-old at his Paris home to abort what they feared was a planned weekend attack, as the prime minister warned some 15,000 people in the country could be in the process of being radicalised.
A security official said that France's intelligence services "detected a threat" and a judicial official said police moved into action on Saturday fearing a planned attack this weekend.
Both officials said the arrest was not linked to the arrests last week of four women, a 15-year-old daughter of one of the women and a man over aborted attacks, including one near Notre Dame Cathedral.
Intelligence agents suspected the boy planned to carry out a knife attack in a public place this weekend, the judicial official said, refusing to name a spot where it was thought the attack might occur [source]

Charlie Hebdo, however, did not apologise and instead released a second offensive cartoon on its official Facebook page on Friday night, further antagonising critics.

The cartoon caption read: “Italians, it is not Charlie Hebdo that built your homes, it’s the mafia!”

The second of two British explorer ships that vanished in the Arctic nearly 170 years ago during an expedition to find the fabled Northwest Passage has been found.
The Arctic Research Foundation said in Canada that the HMS Terror had been located by a research ship.
Last seen in the 1840s while under the command of Sir John Franklin, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror have long been among the most sought-after prizes in marine archaeology and the subject of songs, poems and novels. [source]

Quite honestly, solely looking at "the fence", Hungary are in perfect accordance to European conduct and policy... I mean it's no different than sending war ships to the Mediterranean - they're just not as symbolic or as easy to capture on photo...
Wrt to treatment of the refugees, general attitude and behavior however, Orbàn has some work to do...
Thanks for nothing, :pep: !!

Floods in North Korea that have left hundreds dead or missing are the "worst disaster" to hit the country since World War II, state media said on Wednesday.

The official KCNA news agency did not give exact numbers of those killed or unaccounted for, but a UN report said 138 people have died and 400 are missing after torrential rains caused devastation in the country's far north. [source]

Pope Francis said today the French priest knifed to death at his altar by Islamist militants in July was a martyr, and indicated that Father Jacques Hamel was already on the road to sainthood.
Pope Francis spoke at a special Mass for pilgrims from the Rouen area of France where two attackers stormed into the church in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, forced the 85-year-old Hamel to his knees and slit his throat while they chanted in Arabic.
In his Italian-language sermon, Francis also called on all religions to declare that "killing in the name of God is Satanic". [source]
