Spanish PM Calls Snap Elections for April 28

Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez on Friday called an early general election for April 28, the third in less than four years, after his draft budget was rejected in parliament over the Catalan secession crisis.

"Between two options -- not doing anything and continuing without a budget, or... giving Spaniards their say -- I choose the second," Sanchez told reporters, before announcing the date.
