Another terror attack in Spain, this time south of Barcelona. After the attack in a crowded street with a van yesterday (reportedly the driver had tried to hire a lorry but didn’t have the required permit) 5 men are shot and killed after running down and killing 1 and injuring 6 by Spanish police. They are said to have been wearing fake suicide vests. Julian Druker reported from Barcelona about the attack there which killed 13 and injured hundreds from 34 countries (a young British child is missing after the attack and the family are asking for information on Facebook). He interviewed witnesses and visited the shrine that is now in the street. He also reported on the noisy (clapping and chanting) march in Barcelona today showing people are not cowed by terrorism. In a suspected related incident on Wednesday, an explosion near Barcelona is now thought to be a terrorist bomb going off prematurely killing the bomb maker. Simon Vigar looked the issue of terrorist using vehicles to kill and the safety measures we will now have to live with to minimize the risk, but it was noted again that the issue was when not if such attack will happen as it was very hard to prevent completely.
