    A general strike in Catalonia on Wednesday saw crowds taking to the streets in defiance of Madrid on the same day that Spain's Constitutional Court officially annulled the Catalan parliament's independence declaration.

    The ruling was issued as pro-independence protesters blocked roads and stopped trains in Spain's northeastern region to protest the jailing of ousted Catalan government officials and secessionist activists.
