Spain's PM Sanchez secures another term, ending four-month deadlock

Socialist leader Pedro Sánchez has clinched a vote in parliament to lead Spain for another term as prime minister after weeks of bargaining.
 
He has secured a four-seat majority in the 350-seat chamber, after sealing an amnesty deal for Catalans involved in a failed bid to withdraw from Spain.
 
The conservative Popular Party won elections in July, but leader Alberto Núñez Feijóo failed to form a majority.
 
Mr. Sánchez told MPs that the amnesty deal would help heal wounds.
