Spain PM sets snap election for April

Saturday 14:29 GMT

Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has called a snap general election for 28 April, after Catalan nationalist MPs withdrew support for the Socialist government's budget.

The Parliament cited the tensions around the trial as a factor in its decision, as well as the recent occupation by separatist protesters of a building in Barcelona it uses jointly with the European Commission.
