BARCELONA, Spain (AP) The regional leader of Spain's separatist-minded Catalonia has called off an independence vote scheduled for Nov. 9 but says that an unofficial poll will still be held to gauge sentiment on secession.

Artur Mas said Tuesday that the Catalan government was not backtracking. He said it still intends to push ahead with an official vote at a later date.
