  • The Latest Spanish police detonate controlled explosions

British Prime Minister Theresa May said the United Kingdom "stands with Spain against terror" while France's president and the mayors of Paris and Nice are among the French dignitaries offering support for Barcelona after a deadly van attack.

Catalan police killed five people reportedly wearing suicide vests in a shootout in the coastal town of Cambrils early Friday - apparently foiling a second terror plot linked to the deadly attack on nearby Barcelona just hours before.

Ali Shirazinia said the street was, as usual, teeming with tourists, street merchants and performers on what was a attractive summer's day.

"The auto came toward me, people were flying in the air". They said two suspects are in serious condition. When we stopped she was screaming, because she could not see her children'. People started running and jumping into shops. "People, mad scramble, car-van driving through, literally looking out of our window", he said, visibly somewhat shaken.

"Children were screaming, there was a lot of distress". They were looking at a menu when there was a sudden commotion. Thirteen people were killed and 100 were injured, 15 of them seriously, in what authorities called a terror attack. "It was really scary".

Police said they were investigating a possible link between the explosion and Thursday's attack. "I'm an educated guy but I will never understand so much hatred". Spanish police have also been involved in the arrests of more than 200 suspected militants since then.

"It's a pretty obvious target".

Teams and players later took to Twitter to let everyone know they are safe.

When and where did the attack happen?

Coach Wayne Tinkle confirmed the team's safety in a short video, saying that they were having a pre-game meal in their hotel overlooking Las Ramblas when the attack began.

Two people were arrested after the earlier incident, when a white Fiat van tore through the Las Ramblas district, which was packed with shoppers and holidaymakers. I saw about three or four people lying on the ground. I saw a woman running. "I should have checked but what could I have done?" "It was complete panic", he said. Gunshots were heard in the area, but the source of the gunfire was not clear. Priority: "to take care of the wounded in Las Ramblas and to facilitate the work of the Security Forces".

"At first, we had no idea what was happening", said Istre. "We didn't speak the language". "Clearly, people were scared". It was very surreal. "It was just going straight through the middle of the crowds in the middle of the Ramblas". He was able to explain what was happening. "The plan was to run inside and lock the door if needed".

The Brit said she dived into a shop, but lost her husband in the chaos. The 47-year-old suspect will go on trial next year on charges of "terrorism-related murder and attempted murder".
