Police kill 'terrorists' in Cambrils, near Barcelona by Noblex: 3:30 am On Aug 18, 2017
Spanish police early on Friday said they killed the alleged perpetrators of a suspected "terrorist attack" in the town of Cambrils, south of Barcelona.
Six civilians and one police officer were hurt when a car drove into people in the Spanish seaside resort of Cambrils early on Friday, the regional government said, just hours after a similar deadly attack in nearby Barcelona.
Two of the people injured were in a serious condition, emergency services in Catalonia said.
Police shot dead five attackers in Cambrils - 120 kilometres south of Barcelona - and said
they were "working on the hypothesis that the terrorists shot dead in Cambrils could be linked to what happened in Barcelona".
The news came hours after police launched a manhunt for the driver of a van who ploughed into crowds of people on one of Barcelona's busiest thoroughfares, killing 13 people and injuring 100.
Catalan police said on Twitter that a bomb squad in Cambrils would carry out several controlled explosions after they determined the attackers were carrying explosive belts
Spain's public broadcaster, RTVE ran a video of Cambrils' promenade in which volleys of gunshots could be heard while sirens wailed and people's screams could be heard.
