    Andrew Simmons discusses the uncertainty following Catalonia's declaration of secession from Spain and Madrid's firing the Catalan chief of police, as well as much of the Catalan parliament and government in response.

    Simmons says Barcelona is a state of "delayed shock and no one knows who's in control" after Spanish Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria was delegated the powers of the president of Catalonia by the Spanish government.
