Twin terror attacks in Spain - 13 are dead after a van ploughed into them in Barcelona, while several others are injured as police foil a similar attack in a town to the south. Police are hunting for a 17-year-old they believe was the driver. It's the latest in a series of atrocities in which vehicles have been used to strike terror in Europe - echoing attacks in France, Germany and the UK since last summer. The attack's being linked to an explosion in a house earlier this week in a suspected bomb-making facility - leading to questions over whether more could have been done to prevent last night's killings.
