MADRID, October 25

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said he would ask parliamentary allies to support prolonging a state of emergency, introduced on Sunday, for six months until May.

He said travel between regions will be banned under the new state of emergency rules.

Regions will be allowed to impose curfews between 11 p.m.

The state of emergency will give regions, which decide on their own health matters, the powers to impose stricter restrictions on movement, including curfews. They can also put curbs on businesses and limit other activities such as gathering in groups inside and outside the home.

A number of regions had been calling on the government to allow them to impose curfews. — Reuters
