DEVELOPING: At least one suspect has been arrested after a van plowed into a crowd of pedestrians in a popular Barcelona tourist area Thursday -- resulting in at least  13 dead --  as images of the carnage, showing bodies lying crumpled and bleeding in the street, flooded forth from the Spanish city.

 

Authorites have only confirmed one person was killed and 32 injured, 10 of them seriously, as Spanish newspaper El Pais and Cadena Serradio radio station, citing police sources, reported the death toll at 13.

 

The incident took place on Las Ramblas of Barcelona, the famous main pedestrian walk way that crosses the city. Police described the incident on Twitter as a "massive crash."

 

Spain's public broadcaster said at least one suspect in the Barcelona van attack has been arrested.  State-owned broadcaster RTVE reported a man was detained a few hours after the attack.

:( Looks like running over people is the popular thing for terrorists to do. Sadly there is no quick way to eradicate the scum.  Additionally, we also have to deal with racist domestic terrorists here in the United States. Unfortunately, Mr. Trump seems to believe that building walls, and sending love letters/tweets to North Korea, will make America Great Again. :wacko:

Unfortunate times indeed. People are clamoring over North Korea, scared of an attack, but we need to be more worried about the scum that are already here in the US.

Because divided nations, and looking suspiciously at EVERYONE who isn't a multi generational natural born to that nation is the answer, right?

I don't see why not - as long as your birth rate is good. Generally you want immigration policies similar to Japan, but with a lot more Netflix and chill.
