Thousand of People Attend Peace March After Terror Attack in Barcelona

Doctors said 22 of the over 120 people wounded in the violence on the 17th-18th of August were still in hospital, six are in a critical condition.

The Islamic State (IS) group claimed responsibility for the two attacks.

A woman also was also killed in Cambrils in a stabbing spree by the five occupants of a auto that drove at pedestrians before crashing into a police vehicle.

There was a similar attack in Cambrils, leading to the deaths of 15 people and more than 100 injured.

The five occupants of the Audi A3 jumped out and went on a stabbing spree, killing a woman, before they were shot dead by police.

Another man was stabbed to death in a carjacking as the driver of the van that was driven into pedestrians in Las Ramblas made his getaway.

A judge had granted permission for police investigators to tap Abdelbaki Es Satty's mobile phone line in a 2005 investigation into an Al-Qaeda cell in northeastern Spain, newspaper ABC reported Friday, publishing leaked court documents, but the conversations didn't provide enough evidence to indict him.

Following a week dominated by the response to the deadly attacks in and near Barcelona, Colau told reporters she wanted the "streets of Barcelona to be overflown by people".

Barcelona police said some 500,000 people showed up to the march Saturday. They and Abouyaaqoub were wearing phony suicide belts when they were executed, police said.

The first rank of the event had already been reserved for those who, from the first minute, were occupied victims: police officers, firefighters, taxi drivers, people and shopping of las Ramblas.

In a precedent for a Spanish monarch, King Felipe VI joined the demonstration along with Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and other Spanish and Catalan regional officials. Four more are under investigation, two of them in jail.
