    Soraya Saenz de Santamaria, Spain's deputy prime minister, has asked for clarity after Catalonia's leader failed to declare if his region plans to secede.

     

    In a letter to the central government, the Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont asked for more dialogue. Madrid has given him three more days to announce his administration's decision.
