Barcelona 'terrorist attack': What we know

At least 13 people have been killed in this afternoon's attack and a suspect has been arrested by police

"Now nobody is moving on La Ramblas unless they're under police escort".

"By the time I had arrived there, the whole area was already completely cordoned off, there was still some pretty chaotic scenes when I was there but the police force seems to be pretty onto it", Mr Jones said.

"All of a sudden I heard a crashing noise and the whole street just started to run screaming", he said.

A policeman stands next to an ambulance after a van ploughed into the crowd, injuring several persons on the Rambla in Barcelona on August 17, 2017.

"Police were very, very quickly there, police officers with guns, batons, everywhere", Anwar said.

Horrific video taken after a van plowed into people on the Las Ramblas strip in Barcelona showed dead bodies strewn around, barely conscious victims struggling to move, and pools of blood dotting the popular pedestrian avenue.

Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag, who is also the government's spokesman, also condemned the attack on Twitter: "We give our condolences to the those who lost their lives and their families, and to the people and government of Spain". "We were just about to leave when people started running again and screaming and they said everyone back in".

Islamic State's Amaq news agency said: "The perpetrators of the Barcelona attack are soldiers of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to calls for targeting coalition states" - a reference to a USA -led coalition against the Sunni militant group.

ISIS' media wing, Amaq, issued a statement that said the attackers are "soldiers of the Islamic State", although ISIS has not explicitly claimed responsibility for the attack.

"Terrorists around the world should know the United States and our allies are resolved to find you and bring you to justice", he further added. That included London Mayor Sadiq Khan, US President Donald Trump, former US President Barack Obama, and many others. "Be tough and strong, we love you!" They asked people to stay away from the area so as not to get in the way of emergency services. In December 2016, 12 people died after a driver used a hijacked trick to drive into a Christmas market in Berlin.

Sky News has video of the incident, which the reporter described as "pandemonium".

In the years since the 2004 Madrid bombings, Spanish authorities have reported arresting almost 200 jihadis.
