“Catalan Vote Illegal” – Spain’s King Felipe VI
Spain’s King Felipe VI has condemned organisers of Catalonia’s independence referendum for, according to him, acting “outside the law”.
He made this known in a TV address to the nation on Tuesday.
He said the situation in Spain was “extremely serious”, and called for unity.
Nearly 900 people were wounded when thousands of people in Catalonia clashed with Spanish police during Sunday’s vote.
