:P
A van has crashed into a crowd of people in central Barcelona, police have said.

Several people were injured in a “massive crash”, the Spanish police said on Twitter. Metro stations close to site of the crash on Las Ramblas were closed.

Catalan emergency services said people should stay away from the area around Plaça de Catalunya.

The circumstances of the crash are not known.
Not another :roll: this common trend of people using vehicles as weapons is worrying as it could happen anywhere, you can't even walk the streets in safety.

^Since the guns and armour can be banned or at least traced by police/special forces. vehicles are turning into a dangerous instrument for those evil.

CNN reports 1 dead but Turkish channels say 13 died. Just saw a very graphic video which is very very disturbing. My heart is broken. Sending my condolences to who died and injured in this horrible attack.

At least people can see that the car or van or lori is coming but I'm
More scared now about bombs with nails or with chemicals or even acid attacks

I'm not going to say nothing until they confirm that who done that

Sorry, but I'm afraid I don't get your point, sir. Language is rich and every word/phrase can be taken figuratively or literally. Do you really think that I'm surprise on how terrorists can be so cruel? It's a made-up speech to fit in situations like this.

I'm Spanish, I go to Barcelona several times every year to visit friends and family and I just pointed out that I'm really sad that this is the new norm, getting used that every certain weeks we'll suffer another terrorist attack :-?

Thank you. I'm safe and sound and my friends and family are too. A friend of mine lives on Las Ramblas and she sent us whatsapp audios crying because her sister was nowhere to be found, but she was hiding in the nearest shopping mall and is fine.

Spain, the UK, Turkey, France, Egypt or whatever. This has to stop. :evil: :cry:
