13 Dead, Over 130 Injured in Barcelona Terror Attack (Updated)

Thirteen people are dead and over 130 more injured following a terror attack yesterday in Barcelona, Spain, reports CBSNews.com.

A van barrelling down Barcelona’s Las Ramblas district was responsible for the carnage that unfolded on the busy pedestrian street. While the driver of the vehicle remains on the run, two suspects connected to the attack have reportedly been arrested.

Spanish police said late Thursday that they have killed several people in Cambrils in a second alleged terror attempt.

According to police, the van attack is connected to an explosion that occurred south of Barcelona Wednesday night in which one person was killed and several more injured.

Terror group ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.
