Van Ploughs into Crowd in Barcelona

Unfolding currently, will update when more info available ;

Reports of armed men storming a nearby restaurant and two dead so far

A van has ploughed into crowds in Barcelona's Las Ramblas tourist area.

Police are reporting that people were killed in the "massive crash", and emergency services are urging people to stay away from the Plaça de Catalunya.
People took cover in nearby shops and cafes, while emergency services have requested the closure of local metro and train stations.
El Pais newspaper said the driver of the vehicle had fled on foot after mowing down dozens of people.
Other media reports say police are treating the incident as a terror attack, and that one or two armed men have now barricaded themselves inside a bar in the area.

Steven Turner, who works in the area, told the BBC: "People in my office saw a van ramming into people on Las Ramblas.
"I saw about three or four people lying on the ground."
"There are lots of ambulances and armed police with assault rifles around now."

Details of this incident are still unclear, but vehicles have been used to ram into crowds in a series of attacks across Europe since July last year.

Aamer Anwar said he was walking down Las Ramblas, which was "jam-packed" with tourists.
"All of a sudden, I just sort of heard a crashing noise and the whole street just started to run, screaming. I saw a woman right next to me screaming for her kids," he told Sky News.

"Police were very, very quickly there, police officers with guns, batons, everywhere. Then the whole street started getting pushed back.

"Police officers who got there just started screaming at people to move back, move back."

The police is negotiating at the moment with the attackers that are barricaded at the Turkish restaurant "La Luna de Estambul".

Re: Van Ploughs into Crowd in Barcelona

How long is the distance a van needs to kill at least 13 persons in less than 1 minute?
In Spain it is 530 m.

Here is what Las Ramblas looks like in summer...
So 13 dead is not a lot, it can be worst in next hours.
