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

A British man has described his shock after watching police shoot those suspected of an attack in the Spanish resort town of Cambrils, hours after a similar attack 130 kilometers away in Barcelona.

Emergency services said at least 14 people had died and around 100 more were injured in the two attacks.

Cambrils mayor Cami Mendoza has praised the "speed and efficiency" of the police response.

But other locals say there had been visible signs that some may be radicalised, including some women who were starting to wear veils while others had become less social.

Authorities in Spain are searching for a different suspected driver in the van attack that killed more than a dozen people in Barcelona. Four other Moroccans have been held, police added.

"We are simple, pacifist people, we do not know either radicalism or terrorism", a resident of the region, nestled in the center of the kingdom and whose economy depends largely on the transfer of money from established Moroccans in Europe, told the AFP.

"I pray for a world where there is peace, without hatred and where respect and tolerance is the norm". I ran to our hotel room and slammed the door behind me.

Clotet wrote on Twitter as the reality of the attack unfolded on Thursday evening: "Upset by the terrorist attack on a city that's so dear to me".

"I have been touched by all the accounts of kindness and bravery", she said.

"We were going to stop at a cafe on Las Ramblas but instead crossed the street, the same street the terrorist's van sped into seconds later".

Amaq later also claimed an attack by a knifeman in Russia's far north who wounded seven people on Saturday before being shot dead.

His older brother, Driss Oukabir, was said to have been arrested in the hours following the Barcelona rampage.

The family from Legnano, near Milan, were on holiday in Barcelona.

A post on the group's website said: 'No one was fooled into thinking that the policies of multiculturalism and #RefugeesWelcome wouldn't end like they did in Las Ramblas in Barcelona'.

Arriola said goverment authorities continue to monitor the condition of a father and his son and reported the success of the surgery performed on the five-year old son who suffered a leg injury as a result of the attack.

A mosque that opened in 2008 has also been subject to controversy in the town which is also home to a monastery that dates to 888, according to media reports. "Sending heartfelt hugs to all the families of the victims in Barcelona".

Friday, Aug. 18 - Police shoot dead five people in Cambrils, 120 km (75 miles) down the coast from Barcelona, after they drove their car at pedestrians and police officers.
