The Catalonia's Health Ministry reported that some 761 local residents were injured after scuffling with police during the independence vote.

The previous reports stood at 460 injured.

Earlier in the day, a number of polling stations opened across Catalonia. The Spanish government is considering the vote to be illegal and taking measures aimed at foiling the referendum. According to media reports, police resorted to rubber bullets to disperse the protesters, who attempted to prevent police from shutting down the polling stations.
