  • Woman escapes terror attack at Barcelona after London, Paris

The young woman was in Barcelona with a friend Thursday when a white van launched through the dense crowd of the famous avenue La Rambla has killed at least 14 people dead and over a hundred injured.

But she is not stranger to such terror.

She had been on the Tube in London at the time of the London Bridge attack in June and was at Notre Dame in the same month in Paris when a police man was stabbed.

She told 3AW: 'We started to see people who looked incredibly distressed, walking away from the street and that's when we realised that something had definitely happened.

Monaco and her friends were corralled into an Urban Outfitters store and told to lie face down on the floor away from the windows.

She told 9 News: "We didn't see the van, we could just see the crowds and the police and some people who had clearly seen something awful happen".

Ms Monaco described the latest terror event in Barcelona as "absolute pandemonium".

'We were looking at about 200 people crowded out in the square.

With news breaking of another terror attack, this time in Barcelona, we are reminded that we never can take our guard down from this evil. We were genuinely terrified'.

"I don't feel like I want to go home".

"I feel a bit rattled, it's not how I really expected today to go", she added. "I feel like I want to stay here and not let them, whoever they might be, win".

The Islamic State has since claimed responsibility for the atrocity.

However, the long-term effects of terror attacks on tourism are less severe, in fact the number of visitors to the United Kingdom rose to 3.5 million in June, up 7% from the same month a year ago, with the falling value of the pound thought to be the main reason, as tourists coming from Europe and America now get more for their money in Britain.

French authorities in July said that 271 of those ISIS fighters had returned to France.According to a 2015 estimate by The Soufan Group, which tracks foreign fighters, the total official number of fighters from Spain who had traveled to fight with ISIS was 133, and a high end unofficial estimate was 250.In the wake of Charlottesville and Barcelona, many will be asking how to prevent such vehicular attacks in the future.
