Watching and seeing two different scenes ... van into crowd which may be a terrorist incident and two gunmen inside a restaurant with hostages.
Update 1: Barcelona Police are now calling this a Terrorist Attack....
Update 2: SkyNews is interviewing witnesses who are saying there was a heavier than normal police presence prior to the vehicle incident.
Update 3: From Newsweek - Update: 2:33 p.m. EST—A Catalan regional government official has confirmed on Twitter that at least 13 people have been killed in the vehicle-ramming attack in Barcelona's city center.
Example 4: Live Broadcast: Try this one: SkyNews Live broadcast from the scene
More talk here about statues than about this.
Reuters and Fox News both saying 13 dead, but other sources only saying "at least 1". I'm sure the numbers will become clearer later.
Reuters saying 10 seriously injured, 32 total injured. CNN also saying 32.
The Europeans are going to have to figure out how to fix this..I wish I had some good ideas
Soon every street will be covered by vehicle blocking barriers like in London. Sad times really
Also saw something about "armed men in a restaurant", but that seems to have been dropped?
The punishment for automobile attacks should be getting tied off between two cars and letting them go full throttle.

AI cars would take care of this.

So I assume you support the same punishment for that dickbag in Charlottesville, right?
You were also very quick to defend him and give him the benefit of the doubt until all facts were known, so where's your defense of the terrorist in Barcelona? Maybe he just panicked and hit the wrong pedal. Maybe this is just all a huge misunderstanding, right?
er, according to reports there were shots fired by the driver...........
I made no assumptions in this case, I stated a punishment for this type of cowardly attack if it is indeed an attack. And to answer your first question, yes.
Maybe it was a misunderstanding for all I know. The fact that I've heard hostages were taken afterwards probably points to no though.
Driss Oukabir is a name being reported on Twitter, we will see what pans out.
Police is treating it as a terrorist attack.
Saw Driss Oukabir mentioned again. Spanish news saying he is 20-years-old. Not surprising on that front. It seems to often be men in their 20s.
Two men are in fact hold up in a nearby bar.
Number of hostages unknown.
Terrible news, thoughts and prayers. Redditors are posting videos of the scene. Here's a video, viewer discretion advised!
Get used to it, this is life for the unforeseen future. Germany is probably due soon for another round.
As usual I will wait until some information before drawing any conclusion. As far as we know it could be just a disgruntled husband.
PD is calling it terrorism..
Trump just tweeted: The United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help. Be tough & strong, we love you!
So he can call this a terrorist attack, but not Charlottesville.
Now there is a report of a car (white Ford Focus) ramming a police check point and fired on the police. Still light on details.
This is getting really depressing.
And now they claim to have the driver in custody.
The bar situation turned out to be false. Just patrons holding up out of fear.
That's because how law enforcement is treating it. Can we please avoid the all about Trump thinghy at least for a bit?
It is getting pretty nauseating to read.
