Government of Catalonia spokesperson and Minister of the Presidency Jordi Turull and Government of Catalonia Minister of Justice Carles Mundo attended the funerals of two victims of the Las Ramblas attack in Rubi, north of Barcelona, Monday.
The coffins of the two victims, a 60-year-old man and a three-year-old boy, were met with tears and applause by the scores of funeral attendees.
On the... Еще afternoon of August 17, a van ploughed into pedestrians on the popular tourist destination, Las Ramblas. A total of 14 people were killed and over a hundred were injured.
The attack was followed by similar incident in the nearby coastal town of Cambrils, where an Audi A3 was driven into a group of pedestrians, injuring seven people. Police fatally shot five suspected assailants as they left the vehicle. The attackers were wearing fake-explosive belts.
The attacks have been claimed by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL), though it is unclear as to the level of the group's involvement. Police linked the two incidents with an explosion that took place early on August 17 in the town of Alcanar. The blast was initially believed to have been a gas cylinder explosion, but has since been reportedly connected to the assemblage of a bomb by the group that carried out the attacks.
