Spain's constitutional court on Tuesday said the Catalan regional parliament's declaration on self-determination is illegal, reports Reuters. The Catalonia declaration said people had the right to vote for independence but Spain's court ruled it as "null and unconstitutional". Catalonia is set to hold a referendum on 9 November.
