13 People Dead And Over 100 Injured In Barcelona Terror Attack (Video)

July 18. 2017

For the past week in Spain, people have been enjoying the wonderful football matches between La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, which dominated social networking and sports headlines. People were in good spirits. Then a terrible terrorist attack struck on Thursday killing 13 people and wounding over 100.

Two terrorists used a van to mow down innocent people in the Las Ramblas tourist section of Barcelona, then fled the scene. The Prime Minister of Spain, Mariano Rajoy, labeled it "jihadi terrorism." ISIS has claimed credit for the incident, referring to the perpetrators as "soldiers of the Islamic State." Police have killed the perpetrators of the attack.

My condolences to the people of Spain. May the victims rest in peace. These attacks must stop. There is no excuse for any of this. Innocent people are dying over things they have nothing to do with, which encroach upon their right to life, freedom and happiness.

Also Thursday, two police officers in Barcelona were hurt when they were hit by a car, but police were unsure whether that was related to the other incidents.
The deadly events began in the early evening with a van plowing through crowds on the renowned Las Ramblas avenue, a popular tourist section of Barcelona.
