CATALAN SEPARATISTS SCORE BIG VICTORY IN ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS

Tensions are running high in Spain as Catalan separatists claim a narrow win in new assembly elections.

They’ve taken 70 seats out of a possible 135 – just crossing the threshold to form a Government.

The vote was the first since last October’s illegal referendum which led to the exile of Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont.

He’s been in self-imposed exile in Brussels since the referendum.
