Just been talking to my daughter who used to live there. She's managed to contact one friend, but they can't reach others who they know were in the centre.

On La1 atm, they're saying at least 10 dead. There's to be an official press statement in a few minutes.

Dreadful lets hope the reports on other media outlets of at least 13 dead are inaccurate and the official statement holds true at 1 ....1 too many even so......
Sadly its looking like the earlier official statement was very wide of the mark. Absolute tragedy and such a cowardly act. From accounts so far Spanish Police acted swiftly and decisively along with all the other Emergency services.

Woke up this morning to the news of the new attack in Cambrils, and only learned of last night's tragedy from the waiter in a restaurant we were out at last night. Shocking.

I do remember saying a while ago on the forum that it was just as likely there would be further terrorist outrages in Spain as anywhere else, I don't think anywhere is 100% safe any more.

Condolences to the families and friends of all those who were killed, and to the injured.

There is to be a 5-miinute silence in the square in front of our Ayuntamiento today, I'm sure similar things will be happening all over Spain.

Well, yes, of course. Why would anyone think that Spain would no longer be targeted?
As it's practically impossible to safeguard a city, or town like Cambrils then how can a country be protected? Especially when the perpertators are prepared to die for their cause? Only a certain amount can be done.
Be cautious, be on your guard and live life as best you can.

Death toll now 14. It appears that the US intelligence agencies warned the Spanish that they had credible knowledge of a likely attack in Las Ramblas.
