The Catalan president dismissed by the Spanish government, Carles Puigdemont, was in Brussels on Monday, a government source told AFP.

“He is in Brussels”, said this source, without further details. The Catalan newspaper La Vanguardia reported that Puigdemont was accompanied by several members of the Catalan government that had ceased on Friday, within the measures of the Spanish government to take regional control after its Parliament proclaimed independence.
