Fox News Police in Spain announced early today they killed several people in an anti-terror operation in Cambrils, hours after a van rammed into a crowd about 70 miles away in Barcelona, killing at least 13 people. The attack in Barcelona occurred when a white van jumped onto a promenade and sped through a pedestrian zone on Las Ramblas, the famous main pedestrian walk way that crosses the city. The van swerved from side to side as it ploughed through tourists and residents.
Police later confirmed on Twitter they fatally shot five people after police suspected these five were planning a second terror attack- similar the one in Barcelona, by driving a vehicle into pedestrians. Authorities are investigating whether the suspects were wearing explosive suicide vests and officers planned to carry out controlled explosions. The regional police force is also working to determine if the attack in Cambrils was linked to Barcelona.
