Yes Or No? Spain Demands An Answer On Catalonia’s Independence

Catalan regional President Carles Puigdemont addresses the media after a ceremony commemorating the 77th anniversary of the death of Catalan leader Lluis Companys at the Montjuic Cemetery in Barcelona, Spain, on Sunday.

After the regional government failed to clarify its stance on secession earlier this week, Madrid imposed a Thursday deadline for it to withdraw a declaration of independence or face direct rule.
