Separatist parties have won control of Catalonia's regional government, putting mounting pressure on Spain's central government to grant a referendum for independence for the region.
The main pro-independence party "Junts pel Si" (Together for Yes) won 62 seats in the 135-strong assembly while smaller leftist party CUP won another 10 seats, official results showed. Together, they won 47.33% of the vote.
"Catalans have voted yes to independence," acting Catalan regional government head Artur Mas told supporters after 70% of the vote was counted.
"We ask that the world recognise the victory of Catalonia and the victory of the yes."
Both parties have said that they will unilaterally declare independence within 18 months, although the central government in Madrid says it will block the move in court.
Six people have been killed and several others injured in a rally crash in northern Spain.
A driver lost control during the Coruna rally in the northwestern Spanish region of Galicia and skidded off the track killing four women, one of whom was pregnant, and two men. About a dozen people were hurt.
"One of the drivers took the track at a much higher speed than he should have and he veered off a curve, slamming into around 20 people," a Civil Guard spokesman said.
Local media reported that the driver and co-driver were unharmed although the spokesman was unable to confirm that information.
"The Coruna Rally is in mourning. My deepest condolences to the bereaved and wishes for a complete recovery of those injured," Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who is from Galicia, said on his official Twitter feed.
