Catalonia’s regional leader opened the door to a unilateral declaration of independence from Spain on Sunday (01) after voters defied a violent police crackdown and, according to regional officials, voted 90 percent in favor of breaking away.

Despite Spanish police using batons and rubber bullets to disrupt the banned referendum, which was declared unconstitutional by Madrid, the Catalan government said 2.26 million people had cast ballots, a turnout of about 42 percent.
