Police Shoot Dead Five Terrorists In Spain

Police say the suspects in Cambrils were linked to an attack late Thursday afternoon in Barcelona that killed 13 people and injured at least 100 others.

TV3 reported the house blast, in the village of Alcanar Platja, also injured seven people, including some foreigners from France, Italy and Morocco.

Explosive belts worn by attackers killed by police in the Catalan resort town of Cambrils were fake, the Spanish region's head Carles Puigdemont told local radio station RAC1 on Friday.

Police earlier Friday morning had said five suspects had been killed in the town south of Barcelona during the police response to a terrorist attack in which five civilians and one police officer were wounded.

Death Toll in Catalan Terrorist Attacks Rises to 14
Six bystanders and one police officer were injured - two seriously - when they were reportedly deliberately hit by a vehicle . A van ploughed into crowds in Barcelona's Las Ramblas yesterday afternoon, killing 13 and injuring a hundred others.

Following the attack, two people were detained by police and one was identified as Driss Oubakir, Spanish police said.

The incident came after a van attack in Barcelona on Thursday that so far has left 13 dead and more than 100 people injured.

The Thursday attack in the northeastern Catalan city was the country's deadliest since 2004 when al-Qaeda-inspired bombers killed 192 people in coordinated attacks on Madrid's commuter trains.

Two people are now in custody but the person who was driving the van is still at large, the police said.

While the Global Times is a state-sanctioned tabloid, its views do not always represent official Chinese government policies. Despite the tough rhetoric, Trump insisted that "nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump".

ISIS says it was behind the Las Ramblas attack, boasting that its soldiers had carried out the attack in response to calls for targeting coalition states, referring to the US -led coalition pounding the militant group in Syria and Iraq.

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which have led to three arrests.

Local media reported that the vehicle overturned, and when the attackers got out of the auto they were fired upon by police.

A "small number" of Britons were injured in the terror attacks in Spain and the Foreign Office have sent additional staff to Barcelona to help.
