Catalonia will declare independence from Spain in a matter of days, the leader of the autonomous region has told the BBC.

In his first interview since a disputed vote on Sunday, Carles Puigdemont said his government would "act at the end of this week or the beginning of next".

Meanwhile, Spain's King Felipe VI said the vote's organisers had put themselves "outside the law".

He said the situation in Spain was "extremely serious", calling for unity, as tensions between Spain and the north-eastern Catalonia region continue to mount.

The Catalans won the right to statehood following Sunday's contentious referendum which was marred by violence.

At the time the Catalans were voting on Sunday, there was fierce confrontation in the two English speaking regions of Cameroon between the military and unarmed pro-independence protesters.

Over a dozen people were reported dead as soldiers shot independence protesters where rallies were held on the 56th anniversary of the incorporation of the regions into Cameroon.

Demands for independence have grown in the two English speaking regions of Cameroon in recent years and tension was at its pick on Sunday's pro-independence protests.

Catalonia’s independence from Spain would be very inspiring to many nations and could greatly encourage and empower pro-independence protesters in Cameroon.
