In a bid for  independence from Spain, Catalonia has held a controversial referendum on October 2nd, defying a Spanish court ruling that the move was unconstitutional. A vast majority voted 'yes' in the so-called the '1-O Referendum', that saw national police and civil guards deployed in order to prevent the people from voting, resulting in clashes between police and pro-independence citizens.


Catalonia is expected to declare independence from Spain in a matter of days.
