The federal government in Spain has dissolved the Catalan government after the region's independence vote this month, which Spanish leaders said was unconstitutional.

"Today I have dissolved the parliament of Catalonia and have called for elections for December 21 in that region," Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said in a press conference.

As well as removing Carles Puigdemont from the helm, Rajoy also fired the autonomous region's police chief and said central government ministries would take over the Catalan administration.
