On Thursday Spain suffered its worst terrorist attack in more than a decade when a man mowed a van into the crowds along Barcelona’s La Rambla — one of the country’s most famous thoroughfares. According to Catalonian police Mossos d’Esquadra, at least 13 people died while another 100 suffered injuries — many life-threatening.
“Terror will never stop Barcelona from being Barcelona,” the city’s mayor Ada Colau said hours after the attack. “We’re an open, welcoming and courageous city.”
