    5 Suspects Killed in 2nd Spanish Attack; Manhunt Continues

    Five people shot and killed in a police shootout in the Spanish seaside resort of Cambrils, south of Barcelona, had plowed down pedestrians and police in a car attack and were wearing fake bomb belts in an attack linked to the van attack in Barcelona hours earlier that left at least 14 people dead, Catalan authorities said. Authorities said the back-to-back vehicle attacks — as well as an explosion earlier this week elsewhere in Catalonia — were connected and the work of a large terrorist group. Four people were arrested, but the driver of the van used in the Barcelona attack remained at large and the manhunt intensified for the perpetrators of the latest European rampage claimed by the Islamic State group. Thousands gathered in Barcelona's main square Friday to hold a minute of silence for the victims, with Spain's king and premier attending the observance.
