5 terror suspects shot and killed near Barcelona

World leaders have strongly condemned the Barcelona terror attack claimed by the Islamic State group in which at least 13 people were killed and another hundred were injured on Thursday.

"We arrested a man and we are treating this as a terrorist attack", Catalonian police said on Twitter. "It is a global threat and the response has to be global", Rajoy told a news conference in Barcelona.

According to police's feed on social networks, four alleged terrorists were shot dead, while another one was injured and later died in custody.

Downtown areas were evacuated, and subway stops near the area closed. Police confirmed that Oukabir is one of the detained individuals.

Three years ago, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, ISIS' spokesman, called for attacks in the West using vehicles as weapons.

Catalan police told ABC News that they believe the incident in Cambrils to be related to a separate attack in Barcelona earlier Thursday. Spanish media had earlier reported that a second van had been hired as a getaway vehicle.

Spanish newspaper El Periodico said two armed men were holed up in a bar in Barcelona's city centre, and reported gunfire in the area, though it did not cite the source of the information.

As the incident unfolded, police told everyone in the vicinity of Plaça de Catalunya and Las Ramblas to remain indoors until told it was safe to go outside. Witnesses said it hit a speed of about 80 kilometers (50 miles) per hour, throwing people into the air. He saw the van drive past him. He said "there is no doubt it was intentional", according to TVE24. People were asked to avoid the Ramblas promenade.

Frozen star Idina Menzel told her fans: "Sending love to my friends in Barcelona".

"We're united in grief", Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said in a televised address. "My thoughts are with all those affected".

Trump Abandons Plans for Infrastructure Advisory Council
He tweeted before they could announce the decision they'd reached-attempting to make it appear it was his choice. At Tuesday's news conference, Trump said "both sides" were to blame for the deadly violence.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, speaking after media reports that some Germans were among those killed, said Islamist terrorism "can never defeat us" and vowed to press ahead with campaigning for a general election in Germany in September.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, in turn, expressed condolences to the families of the victims of the recent terrorist attack in Barcelona and stressed that global terrorism can only be eradicated through joint efforts. The king of Spain, Felipe VI, will be present for the moment of silence, the palace's official Twitter account announced.

Las Ramblas Boulevard is one of Barcelona's busiest streets and is generally filled with tourists and street vendors. The sad truth is that, given the vast number of potential targets and the ease with which these attacks can be carried out, there isn't much authorities can do other than to restrict traffic around high profile events and highly symbolic targets.

The incident took place at the height of the tourist season in Barcelona, which is one of Europe's top travel destinations with at least 11 million visitors a year.
