An American among those killed in Barcelona attack

By  | 

BARCELONA, SPAIN -- (WTVY) A van plowed through the crowd at a popular pedestrian shopping area.

A senior police official in Spain's Catalonia region says the van attack that killed 13 people in Barcelona is "connected" to an explosion the night before in a town south of the city in which one person died.

Major Josep Lluis Trapero said during a news conference that one of the suspects detained after Thursday's attack is Moroccan and the other is a Spanish national from Melilla, a Spanish city on Africa's north coast.

He says neither was the van's driver, who fled on foot.
