Catalan government: '337 injured by Spanish police violence' during referendum

Catalonia’s government says 337 people have been injured, some seriously, during a police crackdown on the independence referendum this Sunday.

Nine police officers and 2 members of the Guardia Civil have been injured in the disorder, according to the Spanish interior ministry.

The voting has been marred by a brutal police crackdown in which several instances of violence against voters have been recorded. Videos show police dragging voters from polling stations by their hair, unprovoked attacks on protesters and Spanish police attacking Catalan firefighters.

There have been several calls for Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy to resign over the police response from Catalan politicians and opposition MPs.
