Spanish cops do it right, kill 5 #Islamics, continue manhunt for van driver

Police shot and killed five people wearing bomb belts who staged a deadly car attack in a seaside resort in Spain’s Catalonia region Friday, just hours after a van plowed into pedestrians on a busy Barcelona promenade.

Spanish authorities said the back-to-back vehicle attacks — as well as an explosion earlier this week in a house elsewhere in Catalonia — were related and the work of a large terrorist group. Three people were arrested, but a manhunt was underway for the driver of the van used in Thursday’s Barcelona attack, which killed 13 people and injured 100 others. The Islamic State group quickly claimed responsibility.
