Catalan police have killed five terror suspects and in a shootout in Cambrils, where they were carrying out a counter-terror operation following Thursday’s attack in Barcelona.
Authorities said that police stopped a second van attack that was planned in the coastal town, after an earlier one in Barcelona.
It appears the attackers had tried to replicate the Barcelona attack by driving into people with a van, leaving them injured.
Police said the assailants were wearing explosive vests.
Six civilians and one policeman were injured in the attack in the coastal resort, which lies 120km to the south of Barcelona.
