Barcelona: Manhunt On After Van Rams Crowd In “Terrorist Attack,” Police Say; Many Dead & Injured, Per Reports

A crowd chanted "I am not afraid!"

"A photo from Cannes, one of the Ramblas in Barcelona". Nothing was found in the searches in Girona and Garrigas, police tweeted.

The Manchester suicide bomber was born in Britain but had Libyan parents, two of the London Bridge attackers were of North African backgrounds, and Anis Amri, who drove a lorry into a Berlin Christmas market, was Tunisian.

In its statement, IS declared that the attack was in retribution for the ongoing U.S. -led coalition's mopping-up operations against IS in the Middle East, operations that Spain is a part of.

Spain has also had to deal with a decades-long campaign of violence waged by Basque separatist group ETA, which only declared a ceasefire in 2011.

Catalan authorities said people with Spanish, Algerian, Argentinian, Canadian, Chinese, Colombian, Dominican, Ecuadorean, Egyptian, Philippine, Honduran, Kuwaiti, Mauritanian, Pakistani, Peruvian, and Venezuelan nationality were also among the victims.

All five were shot by police - four were killed by just one police officer.

Spanish authorities said the back-to-back vehicle attacks - as well as an explosion earlier this week in a house elsewhere in Catalonia - were related and the work of a large terrorist group.

Four Australians, including Ms Cadman, were injured in the attack, according to Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

This means Younes Abouyaaqoub, on the run, is the final missing suspect. The third man's arrest circumstances remain unknown.

"No need to travel the world", stated the posting on the social media messaging service Telegram.

At one point, Allan Gray said he looked outside the hotel's window to see what was going on and got a view of the aftermath of the attack.

A damaged van, believed to be the one used in the attack, is surrounded by police officers in the Las Ramblas area, Aug. 17, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain. The perpetrator, Man Haron Monis, proclaimed he was acting under ISIS auspices.

In March 2004, it was hit by what is still Europe's deadliest, when bombs on commuter trains in Madrid killed 191 people in an attack claimed by Al Qaeda-inspired extremists.

It is reported that two suspects have been arrested.

The unsophisticated low-cost attacks are in sharp contrast to the highly coordinated and planned assault on Paris in November 2015 which left 130 dead. In both incidents the suspects deployed vehicles to mow down pedestrians.

The dead and injured came from countries as varied as France, Venezuela, Australia, Ireland, Peru, Algeria and China.
