- The AVE route between Figueres and Girona sabotaged by group “Anonymous Catalonia”.
Anonymous Catalonia has published a photo on their Twitter account which they say is sabotage protesting against the visit of the Kings to Catalonia.
The action has caused damage to the optical fibre that affects the tracks signalling system. Travelers have had to continue their journey by road.
Community President Quim Torra sent a letter Friday to the Zarzuela Palace calling for the royal party to consider revising their itinerary because of the outbreaks of the coronavirus.

This is the first visit in eight months by Felipe VI and Doña Letizia to Catalonia and originally included a visit to Barcelona which has now been cancelled.
The visit now only includes a visit to the Poblet Monastery while all of the other events that were going to take place have been postponed.
