Spain: Las Ramblas mourners defy terror with thousands of notes

Thousands of people wrote messages of condolence and remembrance to those affected by the Las Ramblas attack, Saturday, sticking post-it notes to wires, trees and even the ground at the site where 14 people were killed and scores more were injured. Barcelona resident Aina recounted how someone she knew had both of his legs broken in the attack. “It really was a powerful thing, which has been... Еще happening in many countries for years, [but] still hadn't reached us, and I hope it will be the last city in the world in which such thing will happen”, said Aina. On Thursday afternoon, a van ploughed into pedestrians on the popular tourist destination, Las Ramblas. A total of 14 people were killed and scores more were injured. The attack was followed by similar incident in the nearby coastal town of Cambrils, where an Audi A3 was reportedly driven into a group of pedestrians, injuring seven people. Police fatally shot five suspected assailants were fatally early on Friday morning. The suspected assailants were allegedly wearing explosive belts. The attacks have been claimed by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL). Police are now linking the two incidents with an explosion that took place early on Thursday morning 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 Thursday's and Friday's attacks.
