Spanish judge says no to confinement for Catalonia's Lleida over coronavirus

MADRID, July 13 (Reuters) - A judge barred Catalan authorities from enforcing a stricter lockdown in the city of Lleida and seven other towns as coronavirus cases rose, saying the regional government had exceeded its powers.

People will still not be able to leave the area, under a lockdown decided earlier this month, but won’t have to stay home, the judge said overnight. (Reporting by Ingrid Melander, Emma Pinedo and Joan Faus)
