Spain issues deadline to separatists

Views

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has given Catalonia's separatist leader five days to say whether or not he has declared independence.

If Carles Puigdemont confirms by Monday that he has, he will be given a further three days to withdraw the declaration.

Failing that, Madrid will invoke Article 155 of the constitution allowing it to suspend the region's autonomy and impose direct rule.

Catalan leaders signed a declaration of independence on Tuesday (10).

However, they halted its implementation to allow for talks with Madrid.
