  • Van crashes into dozens of people in Barcelona, several injured

A South Florida man says he and his family were just feet away from the van that crashed into a crowd of people in Barcelona Thursday, killing at least 13 people and injuring 100 others. Two individuals have been detained, police said.

They called on people in the town to not to go out on the streets.

Local media outlets are reporting a second man has been arrested in Manlleu, 50 miles north of Barcelona and a suspect was shot dead in an exchange of gunfire with police.

Around 33,000 people live in Cambril.

They declared the incident a terrorist attack.

"Literally within 30 seconds, police vans, ambulances, police officers with guns were piling out, and we were sectioned off and then being pushed rapidly back". Other video recorded people screaming as they fled the van. "I saw people flying into the air and everyone was running into the shops on either side", he told CNN.

Police identified Oukabir as a legal resident of Spain who was born in Morocco, the Spanish-language newspaper El Pais reported.

Van crashes into dozens of people in Barcelona, several injured

Those who were in the immediate area when the attack occurred reported scenes of panic in the immediate aftermath, before they were instructed by police to stay indoors until the area was secured.

The incident took place at the height of the tourist season in Barcelona, which is one of Europe's top travel destinations with at least 11 million visitors a year, the report noted.

Citizens of Belgium, Poland and Germany were among the 13 people tragically killed when a terrorist drove through a crowd of pedestrians on the tourist-filled street Las Ramblas.

An eyewitness, lawyer Aamer Anwar, who's at a conference in the city, told Sky News said: "All of a sudden, I just sort of heard a crashing noise and the whole street just started to run, screaming".

Spibey said he had taken shelter in a church with four or five dozen other people. He was being briefed on developments in Spain by his chief of staff, John Kelly, the White House said.

Cars, trucks and vans have been the weapon of choice in multiple extremist attacks in Europe in the previous year. In December 2016, 12 people died after a driver used a hijacked trick to drive into a Christmas market in Berlin.
