CATALAN leader Carles Puigedemont has said his region will declare independence from Spain in the next few days.

Puigdemont said his government would ‘act at the end of this week or the beginning of next,’ in an interview with the BBC.

He said the referendum is valid and its result must be implemented.

Some 700,000 people took to Barcelona’s streets to protest against police violence during the banned independence referendum at the weekend.
