Local man staying in Barcelona speaks out about attack

University rector describes 'total panic' in Barcelona

Police said the driver of the vehicle fled on foot.

Police also arrested four others believed linked to the Cambrils attack and the carnage yesterday on a famous Barcelona promenade.

People laid candles on the street beside bloodstains on the pavement where victims had been hit, she said.

On Friday at noon, thousands of people gathered in Catalonia Square for a minute of silence to honor the victims of the two terror attacks.

As long as the ideology survives, terror groups will morph, merge and even improve on terror delivery systems.

A spokesman said UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres "condemns today's terrorist attack on Barcelona" and "hopes that those responsible for this heinous violence will be swiftly brought to justice". And then we started to read online publications, competing to collect as much news, photos and videos of this young Italian, dead in a terrorist attack in Barcelona. One of the dead was a policeman, who had been stabbed.

A vehicle also was used last weekend to attack protesters in the American city of Charlottesville, Virginia.

Additionally, one person was killed when a house exploded on Wednesday evening in Alcanar, about 60 miles south of Cambrils.

"Because of that the attack in Barcelona and the one in Cambrils were carried out in a bit more rudimentary way than the one they had initially planned".

But conversation here, among locals in bars and taxi drivers at least, is of moving on. We all come together with affection for his companion, Martina, and his two small children.

When the van suddenly appeared, Mr Gulotta was struck, while Martina managed to pull the boy out of the vehicle's path. She could not save Mr Gulotta and could only watch him die on the spot, according to state broadcaster RAI.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar expressed his abhorrence at what he described as a callous and cowardly act. "I got pushed inside the souvenir kiosk and stayed there hiding while everybody kept running by screaming". Police fatally shot four suspects in that incident, The Washington Post reported. The suspects were also wearing fake suicide vests.

A further two arrests were made in Ripoll on Friday. "It's antithetical to the American idea".

The rest of the family did not suffer significant injuries.

"I think it's amazing", Melbourne woman Susan McLean said as the crowd streamed past.

"I'm not angry so much as I don't understand it", Dan Tucker said, voice breaking. "My wife's in shock".

On Thursday, a van hit pedestrians in Barcelona's central Ramblas area.

The injured and dead came from 24 different countries, the Catalan regional government said, ranging from France and Germany to Pakistan and the Philippines.

Meanwhile, Germany's foreign office says at least 13 German nationals were injured in the attack - "some of them seriously, so seriously that they are still fighting for their lives", says foreign ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer.
