    Spain's Supreme Court has withdrawn an international arrest warrant for the former regional president of Catalonia.

    Carles Puigdemont, who is currently in Belgium - is still facing charges of sedition in Spain.

    He is hoping that separatist parties will increase their majority in the regional parliament in elections later this month.
