Over a dozen dead in Barcelona terror attack

At least 13 people have died and dozens are injured from a terror attack in which a van was ploughed into crowds in a busy tourist area of Barcelona.

The vehicle sped along the pedestrian area of the famous Las Ramblas area, a touristic and commercial hotspot in the Catalan capital.

Two people have been arrested, but police say neither was the driver.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack in a brief statement carried by its Amaq news agency, however no further evidence or details were provided to verify the claim.
