A proxy war between two of the biggest powers in the Middle East - Iran and Saudi Arabia - has escalated, directly affecting other countries in the region. Almost a million people have taken to the streets of Barcelona, outraged at Madrid's crackdown on former Catalan leaders who were behind the region's independence declaration. A highly anticipated formal meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin fails to materialise - though the pair did chat on the sidelines of the APEC summit, and agreed to cooperate on Syria. The US Justice Department demands that RT America registers as a foreign agent by Monday. If it fails to comply the channel's bank accounts could be frozen.
