A Madrid representative in Catalonia has for the first time offered apologies for the police violence during independence vote.

“When I see these images, and more so when I know people have been hit, pushed and even one person who hospitalised, I can’t help but regret it and apologise on behalf of the officers that intervened,” Spanish government’s official representative in Catalonia, Enric Millo, said in a television interview as quoted by Reuters.
