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.”
