Isis have claimed responsibility for the vehicle ramming attack in Las Ramblas, Barcelona. The claim was made on the extremist group’s news agency Amaq.
Isis often quickly claim responsibility for terrorist attacks in Europe and elsewhere, even if they have been carried out by so-called ‘lone wolves’.
At least 12 people were killed and 80 others injured when a van rammed a crowded pavement in Barcelona. The area was busy with tourists at the time.
