2 held, driver sought after Barcelona van attack kills 13 pedestrians

BARCELONA, Spain — A van veered onto a promenade and barreled down a busy walkway in central Barcelona on Thursday, swerving back and forth as it mowed down pedestrians and turned a picturesque tourist destination into a bloody killing zone. Thirteen people were killed and 100 were injured, 15 of them seriously, in what authorities called a terrorist attack. Two people were arrested, but the van driver, who fled on foot, remained at large. Early Friday morning, police killed five suspects engaged in an attack that injured six people in a seaside resort town and that the government for Spain’s Catalonia region said was connected to the Barcelona killings.
