Barcelona incident

A van has been driven into a group of people in a popular area of Barcelona and a number have been injured.

The driver was seen running off and the metro and local trains have been stopped.

Accident or terriorist attack ?

Hopefully it's not the latter.

Re: Barcelona incident

Pathetic cowards aren't they. At one point they were blowing themselves up and now it seems they want kill with motors then flee before they get caught, as fast as their little heels can carry them. Very dangerous world, you are not safe anywhere, the governments have failed everyone. If it was up to me I would revamp the Flavian Amphitheatre and pit animal against animal. 4 legged V 2 legged and the 4 legged is very hungry and in a foul mood and has big white razor sharp teeth.

Not really surprising given the surveillance states we increasingly live under.

Much easier (and a much greater chance of succeeding) to rent/steal a vehicle and mow people down, than to organise bombings...

Re: Barcelona incident

:: There are reports of gunfire and hostages. Armed police are seen in the streets

:: A Spanish passport has been found inside the van, say reports

also the death toll may rise Sad
