Spain regions: Catalonia votes in key elections
Voting has begun in the Spanish region of Catalonia in a snap election dominated by the issue of independence.
Catalan nationalist parties have been campaigning for a referendum on whether the region should break-away from Spain.
A referendum on independence for Catalonia, which has Barcelona as its capital and already enjoys significant autonomy, would be illegal under the current constitution.
