Catalan leader calls on citizens to defy judge on confinement refusal

BARCELONA — The regional leader of Spain’s Catalonia called on the residents of the city of Lleida to follow his government’s home confinement orders after a rise in coronavirus cases despite a judge’s decision to bar the lockdown.

Quim Torra told a news briefing it was impossible to accept the judge’s ruling because of the risks involved, adding that his government would approve a decree to tackle the growing number of cases in the region. (Reporting by Joan Faus, writing by Andrei Khalip; Editing by Nathan Allen)
