PEOPLE have been leaving flowers to remember the victims of an attack in Barcelona, Spain.
The attack took place last Thursday (17 August), when a van drove into crowds of people in a tourist area called Las Ramblas. Thirteen people died there and many more were hurt. The emergency services arrived very quickly and helped many people.
Later the same day, Spanish police managed to stop attackers before they reached a crowded area in a small town called Cambrils, near Barcelona. One woman died and the five suspected attackers were killed by police. Police say this attack was linked to the one that happened earlier in Barcelona.
The extremist group that calls itself Islamic State says it is responsible.
The city’s famous football club, FC Barcelona, said it was “deeply saddened” by the attack.
Star player Lionel Messi added: “There are many more of us who want to live in a world in peace, without hate.”
