Over 840 people injured in Catalonia during referendum

Published: Updated:

Some 844 people have been injured in disturbances across Catalonia on Sunday, the regional government said, as riot police clashed with people who had gathered for a banned referendum on the region's independence from Spain.

The Catalan government said around 2.26 million people had cast a ballot in a banned referendum to leave Spain on Sunday and 90 percent of them had voted in favor of secession.

This represents a turnout of around 42.3 percent of Catalonia's 5.34 million voters.
