spainSpain’s King Felipe VI made a rare televised address to the country, criticizing the Catalan government after the region held an independence referendum on Sunday.

Catalan authorities “have placed themselves outside the law and democracy, they have tried to break the unity of Spain and national sovereignty,” he said, according to a translation by the Financial Times.

It was the “responsibility of the legitimate powers of the state to ensure the constitutional order,” he added.

ABC News reported that he also said the bid by authorities in Catalonia to push ahead with independence has “undermined coexistence” in the region.
