Catalonia asks Spain for further 9 billion euros bailout


The independence-minded region of Catalonia has asked the Spanish central government for an extra 9bn euros (£7.7bn) in bailout money.

Catalonia’s regional government said it needed the money to pay down debts and meet deficit reduction targets.

It adds to the 5bn euros the debt-stricken region initially requested from Spain in August last year.
