Spain PM Move To Impose Direct Rule Over Catalonia

   Thousands of protesters wave Catalan separatist flags during a demonstration today 
Protesters have poured onto the streets of Barcelona today as Spain's Prime Minister moved to impose direct rule over Catalonia and threatened to arrest the region's president if he declares independence. 
Mariano Rajoy wants to sack the Catalan government and call an election within six months in a bid to thwart a drive by the autonomous Region to breakaway.
Rajoy said his government had taken the unprecedented decision to restore the law, ensure regional institutions were neutral and guarantee public services.
