First CCTV video emerges showing van attack in Barcelona
The first video of the ramming attack which killed 14 people and injured more than 100 others in Barcelona on Thursday has surfaced online. A CCTV camera inside a museum in Las Ramblas caught the van plowing through the crowded street.
The footage was taken by anindoor camera at a local erotic museum, and overlooked a window facing Las Ramblas.
There’s a mannequin in the window which recreates the famous white dress scene from Marilyn Monroe’s ‘The Seven Year Itch’ movie, with the van briefly seen speeding along the street in the background.
At least 14 people were killed and around 130 injured in separate vehicle ramming attacks in Barcelona and the nearby coastal town of Cambrils on Thursday and Friday.
On Thursday afternoon, the driver of a white van struck a group of pedestrians in the iconic Las Ramblas street in central Barcelona, killing 13 people and injuring over 100.
The second vehicle attack, in which six people were injured and a woman later died in hospital, took place in the early hours of Friday in Cambrils.
The Cambrils terrorist suspects were killed during a standoff, with police saying they were wearing fake suicide vests and had an ax and knives in their vehicle.
Three Moroccans and one Spaniard have been detained in relation to the Catalonia assaults, with law enforcement officials saying they were preparing a bigger attack.
