IN PHOTOS: Blood spilled as Catalunya referendum kicks off


PHOTOS circulating on social media are allegedly showing the bloody outcome of Catalunya’s independence referendum.

The photos show bloodied locals being walked away by police while one photo shows and elderly woman being carried by her arms and legs by several Spanish cops.

Police have used rubber bullets to shoot at voters, while locals have been seen throwing barricades at the authorities.

It comes after Madrid labelled today’s vote as illegal and unconstitutional.

Last night the national government said they were confident they had closed most polling stations.

However hundreds of thousands of Catalonians have come out to vote since polls ‘opened’ early this morning.
