 A second terror attack occurred in Spain's northeastern Catalan region, hours after a van drove into a large group of pedestrians in a crowded Barcelona street, killing 13 and injuring over 100.



In the early hours of Friday morning, five armed attackers were shot dead while attempting to enter a tourist area in the small coastal town of Cambrils, 120 kilometers south of Barcelona, police said.



Officials have so far provided little information concerning the Cambrils attack, other than confirming that six bystanders were injured along with one police officer.

Reports the attackers may have been armed with suicide belts remains unverified, though police say a specialist bomb disposal team was deployed.



In a press conference Thursday, Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy labeled the Barcelona attack as "jihadi terrorism."
