Summary:

A white, rented van plowed into a busy street in Barcelona’s historic Las Ramblas district. Barcelona police called it a terror attack and local media reported 13 dead and 50 injured. Witnesses saying the van zigzagged down one of Barcelona’s busiest tourist avenues, Las Ramblas, mowing down pedestrians and leaving bodies strewn across the ground.  The incident took place at the height of the tourist season in Barcelona, which is one of Europe’s top travel destinations with at least 11 million visitors a year.

Social network footage showed numerous bodies strewn along the Ramblas, some motionless. Paramedics and bystanders bent over them, treating them.

Police said they had arrested a man linked to the attack in the heart of the city, but did not identify him or describe his role. Earlier police were searching for the van’s driver who, according to local media, fled the scene on foot. Another suspect was killed in a shootout with the police.

A second man has also been arrested.

Earlier Spanish media had reported that two armed men were holed up in a bar in downtown Barcelona, and reported gunfire in the area, However, police later dismissed those reports.

The Islamic State’s Amaq news agency claims that the attack was carried out by “soldiers of the Islamic State” in response to calls to target citizens of countries “belonging to the coalition.”

Update 11: According to a statement from the Amaq news agency, the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the Barcelona attack. According to Amaq, the attack was carried out by “soldiers of the Islamic State” in response to calls to target citizens of countries “belonging to the coalition.”

Additionally, Catalonia’s regional president said there have been two arrests after the Barcelona van attack, which killed 13 and hospitalised 80.

Separately El Pais reports that a suspect who attacked an officer of the Mossos d’Esquadra, or the Barcelona police, at a checkpoint on the road out of Barcelona after the attack has reportedly been found dead in his car. The body was discovered in Sant Just Desvern, 3km from where the police fired shots in an attempt to stop him. It was unclear whether he died from the gunshot wounds of police, or whether he killed himself.

    • TrevorD

      Indeed Randy, I guess some are paid, others are maybe threatened or brainwashed. And some have their identities stolen and are therefore framed. These Psychos are upto all sorts.

        Isn’t it odd that his passport was found in the vehicle? Who leaves their passport in a vehicle that was just used to commit a terrorist attack?
        Whenever you read about one of these attacks, and they report that someone’s passport, wallet or some form of ID was found in or around the scene, it should immediately put up a red flag. Because nobody does that. I don’t care how dumb they are, nobody does that.

      • Freespirit

        AND Depopulation

    • They get OshKosh military vehicles, AK-47 Clones made at Red River Arms/Ammo depot TX, Toyota TRD package SUVs, etc… Only the best.
      What rag tag Army in the 4th World would be able to survive fighting the combined armies of the middle east & Russia ? None, not for long, think.

    “CIA warned Spanish police that Las Ramblas was a likely terror attack target TWO MONTHS ago” (Mailonline.com and others)
    Main suspect Driss Oukabir handed himself into police after seeing his picture on TV knowing that his passport had previously been stolen.(His passport was found in the vehicle) (Rt News and others)
    Barcelona is part of Catalonia which will be voting for Independence from Spain in October (and is seen as a huge threat to the Spanish and the EU). (BBC and many sources)
    So just another terrorist attack…..?

    • lee ho fook
