Post-Spain elections, Catalan leaders urge talks with PM

Moderate Catalan separatist parties boost their standing in Spain's national parliament in Sunday's general elections.

    But pro-separatist parties gained just 40 percent of the votes there, showing deep divisions over independence remain.
