Spain: Ciudadanos leader Albert Rivera votes in snap elections


Spain's centre-right Ciudadanos leader Albert Rivera casts his vote near Barcelona, in snap elections marked by a resurgence of the far-right. Opinion polls give outgoing socialist premier Pedro Sanchez a win but without the necessary majority to govern alone, meaning he will have to seek alliances in a political environment that has soured since Catalonia's failed secession bid.
