What Next For Catalonia? [world Service]



Former Catalan leader calls for new talks with Spain following election result

BBC OS gives a vibrant account of the day\u2019s events with explanation and reaction from those involved.

Catalan pro-independence parties have regained a majority in snap regional elections. Carles Puigdemont has called on the Spanish prime minister to negotiate a political solution to the crisis in Catalonia. We hear reaction from the region. Another attack in Afghanistan; we take a look back at a violent year in the country and ask what can be done. And we hear how one listener has come to the rescue of a domestic worker who was left stranded for Christmas because of a travel agency blunder.
