“Barcelona terror: 13 dead as van rams pedestrians,” by Art Moore, World Net Daily, August 17, 2017:
A van plowed into pedestrians in a busy tourist area of Barcelona, killing at least 13 people and injuring dozens.
Police are now calling it a terrorist attack.
A Moroccan man named Driss Oukabier, believed to have rented the van used in the attack, has been arrested. The Spanish TV station TVE said it was unclear if Oukabir was among the attackers.
Another suspect, whom police are calling a terrorist, has died in a shootout with police, reported Spain’s TV3.
Local state television reported that about two and a half hours after the attack, the second suspect, driving a white Ford Focus, rammed a police officer at a police checkpoint. The suspect got out of the car and engaged in a shootout with police in which he was killed.
Police also said they investigated a van about 50 miles away in the small town of Vic in Catalonia. They found no explosives but believe the vehicle was related to the attack.
Spanish media previously reported the second van had been rented as a getaway car, Reuters reported.
Soon after the attack Thursday near the famous, tree-lined Las Ramblas promenade, Spain’s El Periodico newspaper reported two armed men were holed up in a nearby Turkish restaurant in the Spanish coastal city’s center.
But police now say what was thought to be a standoff was people barricading themselves in the restaurant….
