Barcelona's mayor Ada Colau signed a book of condolences alongside colleagues before holding a press conference in the coastal city following a deadly van attack in Las Ramblas on Thursday.
The mayor stated «Barcelona is a city of peace, Barcelona is a city open to the world, and therefore we will continue being so, stronger than ever.»
A van mowed down dozens of people along La Ramblas in... Еще central Barcelona on Thursday, claiming the lives of 13 people. The so-called Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL) have claimed responsibility for the attack, though it is currently unclear the level of their involvement.
A similar attack took place in the coastal town of Cambrils some hours later, when an Audi A3 ploughed into a group of people, early on Friday morning, killing one woman and leading to injuries to five other civilians and a police officer. Upon exiting the car the five suspects, some of whom were wearing fake suicide belts, were shot; four dying at the scene and one succumbing later to his injuries. A manhunt continues for a further suspect thought to be connected to the attacks.
