Following a contentious referendum marred by violence, Catalan officials have said that just over 90 percent of those who voted a week ago Sunday favored independence from Spain.

Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont has said that the region has won the right to statehood and that the door has been opened to a unilateral declaration of independence. Spain has bitterly opposed the vote and the country's constitutional court banned it.

Hundreds of people were injured as police officers attempted to block voting, confiscating ballot papers and boxes in the process. The following infographic shows the extent of the violence with 844 injuries recorded by different health departments in the region. 33 police officers were also injured during the unrest.

While Mr Puigdemont said that citizens of Catalonia had won the right to an independent state during a televised address, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said Catalans had been fooled into taking part in an illegal vote. Independence supporters and anti-independence protestors have held rallies in Barcelona and other cities while 40 trade unions and Catalan associations are calling for a region-wide strike on Tuesday due to "violations of rights and freedoms".
