Good afternoon Nice sunny day and then breaking news.Here it is below I know this place very well.As we stayed near by and walk up with seeing some of the mime there.This was a lovely place. They are not sure how this attack is related to. Just heard that it was a terror attack. Photo is public domaine Below is from AP ________________________________________________________________ A driver in a van hit a crowd in the heart of Barcelona, injuring several people in an area popular with tourists The crash occurred near Las Ramblas in Barcelona, Spain, the police said. It was not immediately clear whether the episode was related to terrorism — or if it was even intentional — but Islamist militants have staged several attacks recently in which they used vehicles to plow into crowds.

@amadeo It seems now that the driver of the van is still on the run. We get some very confusing news here sometimes too. They are working round the clock to save the lives of the very badly injured also.

@amadeo They have been working double shifts to get the right kind of equipment and things together. There are four very young children critical and about eight french people left now and two women who might not make it through but I hope they do.

Yes it was a terrorist attack, the ISIS again and the police was able to stop another about 80 miles from Barcelona. This hate will never end.

Isis does this to get our attention and attract publicity. I wonder if it would help to stop giving their attacks World wide publicity. I have no earthly idea, just wondering.

There are sixteen french people on the critical list at the moment according to the News. Macron was saying that France has been very hard hit. It was all intentional according to the news that is coming out now.
