Spanish police free Mali diplomat's wife held prisoner in consulate

MADRID (Reuters) - Spanish police freed the wife of the honorary consul of Mali after a man held her prisoner inside its Barcelona consulate, a Catalan regional police spokeswoman said.

The woman and the man, from Mali, were not hurt during the joint operation by regional police and special forces of the national police.

Regional police said the man, who was detained by national police, wanted his “administrative situation” resolved, without giving more details.
