Catalan police have tweeted that they believe the Cambrils attack was a terrorist incident, and that the perpetrators have been killed.
Spanish outlet Cadena Ser has reported that the Cambrils attackers also attempted a van ramming attack in the town square, but the van overturned and the occupants were shot by police.
We work with the hypothesis that the incident of #Cambrils respond to a terrorist attack. We have shot down the perpetrators— Mossos (@mossos) August 18, 2017
The incident comes just hours after Thursday's van ramming attack in Barcelona's city square that left 13 dead.
Police are examining possible links of terror suspects killed in Cambrils to Barcelona van attack, which Daesh has claimed responsibility for. The similar modus operandi of the attacks would suggest that there is some connection.
According to the Catalan police, the situation in Cambrils is now under control.
