BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A Brussels court, which will rule on whether to accept an arrest warrant issued by Spain for former Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont, will convene on October 29, the Brussels prosecutor said.

Puigdemont presented himself to Belgian police on Friday, prompting his arrest. A judge ruled that he could be released, but on condition that he not leave Belgium and remain reachable.
