article imageVan ploughs into crowd in Barcelona, injuries reported

By AFP     Aug 17, 2017 in World

A number of people were injured when a van rammed into a crowd of pedestrians on Barcelona's iconic Las Ramblas on Thursday, police said.

"Huge collision on Las Ramblas in Barcelona by an individual driving a van, many injuries," a statement said.

The area around the incident was cordoned off, with several ambulances and police vehicles on the scene, an AFP correspondent said.

The famous Las Ramblas boulevard is one of Barcelona's busiest streets, normally thronged with tourists and street performers until well into the night.

It was not immediately clear if the van had been deliberately driven into people, but vehicles have been used as weapons in several terror attacks in Europe in recent years.
