The two leaders spoke shortly after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that a U.S. citizen was among the 13 people killed on Thursday when terrorists drove a van into a throng of pedestrians in Barcelona's Las Ramblas district.

The next day at about 5 p.m., a rental van was driven at high speed from Barcelona's Plaça de Catalunya deep into the teeming crowds on the city's most famous thoroughfare, Las Ramblas.

The white van drove into the popular shopping and food district Thursday afternoon, traveling 1,800 feet through the pedestrian area, according to Rac1, a Catalan radio station.

Catalan police said the five attackers in Cambrils were carrying an ax and knives in the vehicle and were wearing fake explosives attached to their bodies.

Four people, aged 21, 27, 28 and 34, have been arrested in connection with the attack, police said.

Alcanar, Wednesday evening: An explosion rips through a house in the small town, 200km south of Barcelona.

"The involvement of at least eight suspected perpetrators in three different events linked to the attacks suggests the presence of a wider cell and network of militants", Iho wrote, making his remarks before police announced a fourth arrest Friday.

La Falange blames "policies of multiculturalism" and immigration for the terrorist attack, for which Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) has claimed responsibility.

The terrorists were preparing bigger atrocities than those they carried out, police said.

On a Brooklyn rooftop shortly after the collapse of the Twin Towers, Jenna Piccirillo and three-month-old Vaughan embody innocence and resilience, according to the photographer: "Life continues in the face of disaster. despite the horrors we inflict on one another". A manhunt is underway for the driver of the van.

As of tonight, there are 14 dead, including one American, in Thursday's attacks on Barcelona and a coastal town.

"It's not just this one (incident) because there have been other ones, so we have to condemn that and regret all these things that are happening now".

Real Madrid's Portuguese captain Ronaldo took to social media to express his shock at the attack which also left more than 50 injured. The dead and injured came from 34 countries, ranging from France and Germany to Pakistan and the Philippines.

The cyber safety expert was 100 metres away from Las Ramblas when the attack took place and remembers a "tidal wave" of people fleeing "screaming and crying".

Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said the attack showed the European Union's system of migrant relocation was wrong.

Las Ramblas was described as a "ghost town" on Friday morning. "We saw people going flying because of the collision, we also saw three cyclists go flying", Ellen Vercamm, on holiday in Barcelona, told El Pais newspaper.
