Spain: 1 arrested at Madrid pro-independence Catalan referendum rally

One pro-independence supporter was arrested at a rally in Sol Square, Madrid, Sunday, as hundreds hit the streets of the Spanish capital following the announcement of the Catalan government which stated that an overwhelming majority cast a 'Yes' vote in the independence referendum. The Catalan government announced that according to preliminary results 2,262,424 ballots were cast; with 90,09... Еще percent voting in favour of Catalonia's independence from Spain and 7,87 percent casting a 'No' vote. The Catalan government noted that the result reflects only the ballots that «were not seized» during police raids on polling stations during the referendum.
