Catalan President to Declare Independence Pending Vote Outcome

The president of Spain's Catalonia region said he will unilaterally declare its independence from Spain if the outcome of Sunday's referendum on the matter shows more than 50 percent of voters want to secede.

"We have gained the right to have a state constituted in the form of a republic," President Carles Puigdemont said in a televised address after polls closed.

The government of Spain, however, forcefully disagrees.

Officials in Catalonia said more than 800 people were injured when police tried to keep residents from voting. Spain's Constitutional Court suspended a law passed by the Catalonia’s parliament calling for the vote, but the referendum was held anyway.

Officers from Spain's national police forces raided polling places in an effort to close them down. Video showed police dragging people from polling stations and beating and kicking would-be voters and demonstrators.
