Police stop second attack in Cambrils after Las Ramblas massacre

Catalan police said today that the situation in Cambrils, south of Barcelona, was under control after they killed five people in an operation following yesterday's Barcelona van attack, reported City AM. A van ploughed into crowds in Barcelona's Las Ramblas yesterday afternoon, killing 13 and injuring a hundred others. The driver of the van fled and is still at large. Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy called it a "jihadist attack" and said on Twitter: "The terrorists will never defeat a united people who love freedom in the face of barbarism. "All of Spain is with the victims and families." In Cambrils, seven people including a police officer were wounded when a car was driven into a group of people earlier on today in a similar attack to yesterday's in Barcelona, according to Catalan emergency services. Spanish media reported that when the men got out, some appeared to be wearing explosive belts, and they were fired upon by police, before a series of controlled explosions was carried out. Police said the situation in seaside resort Cambrils is now under control. They have also posted an emergency number for families affected yesterday. Read more at cityam.com
