    First CCTV footage showing a white van ramming pedestrians in Barcelona appeared on the web.

    A security camera shows the passing of the van that hit over 100 people in the attack on La Rambla in Barcelona.

    On Thursday, a van mowed down a crowd of pedestrians in the central Ramblas area in Spain’s tourist resort of Barcelona, leaving 14 people dead and over a hundred injured, in what police said was an act of terrorism. Daesh terrorist group (IS, outlawed in Russia) claimed responsibility for the attack.

    Several hours after the Barcelona tragedy, a van rammed into a crowd of passers-by in the coastal town of Cambrils 74 miles south of the Catalan capital, injuring seven people, including a police officer. A woman later died in hospital. In a following counter-terrorist operation, four attack suspects were killed and one died from wounds later.
