So much for giving the terrorists what they want and they go away and leave you alone. Sooner or later they always come back.

At Least 13 Dead, 50 Injured After Van Strikes Crowd In Barcelona, Officials Say

http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/08/17/544162696/van-reportedly-strikes-crowd-in-barcelona-multiple-injured-police-say

A van drove into a crowd of people on a popular pedestrian street in Barcelona, Spain, on Thursday, killing at least 13 people and injuring at least 50 others, Catalonian Interior Minister Joaquim Forn says. Police say they have arrested a suspect; the driver of the vehicle initially fled the scene.

Regional police are describing the deadly incident on Las Ramblas boulevard as a terrorist attack, while also emphasizing that they do not know the motive. The white van slammed into scores of people after it jumped a curb and drove down the famous pedestrian walkway that runs down the middle of the Las Ramblas boulevard.



Who Is Driss Oukabir? Barcelona Van Attack Suspect Hunted by Police

http://www.newsweek.com/barcelona-van-suspect-attack-651986

The van used to plow down and kill at least 13 people and injure as many as 50 others Thursday in Barcelona's busy Las Ramblas district was reportedly rented by a man named Driss Oukabir, Spanish news outlet El Pais reported. 

Oukabir is reportedly a Moroccan citizen who was born in the town of Aghbala but is also a legal resident of Spain, police told El Pais. He also had spent time in a jail in Figueres and had been released in 2012. He lives in Ripoll, located some 65 miles north of Barcelona and near where he rented the van.

Barcelona terror attack: 4 dead in shootout with Spanish police in Cambrils

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/barcelona-terror-attack-cambrils-shootout/

CAMBRILS, Spain -- Police in Spain say they have shot and killed four people south of Barcelona while carrying out an operation in response to a terrorist attack on Thursday.

The regional police for the Catalonia region said on Twitter early Friday that officers are in Cambrils, a seaside resort town 62 miles from Barcelona. According to BBC News, police said they stopped a second alleged terror plot. Authorities called on people in the town not to go out on the streets.

Spain's public broadcaster, RTVE, is reporting that regional police troopers have killed four people and injured another. The broadcaster says police suspected they were planning an attack in Cambrils just hours after a van swerved onto a pedestrian promenade in Barcelona, killing 13.

There was also an explosion at a house (one dead, several injured) a day before the attack that the police originally believed to be a gas leak but now they believe there is a connection between the occupants of the house and the Barcelona terrorists.

"Four of the suspected attackers in Cambrils were killed immediately.
Police said on Friday that four of them were killed by a single police officer". :clap:

A seven-year-old boy was separated from his mom (who ended up in the hospital) during the attack and he's been missing since.
