Celebrities Send Their Love to Barcelona After Deadly Terrorist Attack
Our thoughts and prayers are with the city of Barcelona, Spain today, as at least 13 people are dead, and reportedly 80 others were injured, due to a terrorist attack.
Reminiscent of the June tragedy in London, an unidentified driver drove a van into a crowd of pedestrians in the Las Ramblas district, which is a popular tourist destination in the Spanish city.
Police reportedly arrested two men, while another one of the van attackers is said to have died in a shootout. So far, not many more details have been provided.
Since the announcement, many have expressed their sympathies and support, including the President and the First Lady:
The United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help. Be tough & strong, we love you!
