A van rammed into pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a tourist hotspot in Barcelona, killing at least 13 and injuring scores of others on Thursday evening.

The attack, which was claimed by terror group ISIS, underscores a growing technique of deadly assault — namely vehicles striking crowds of people. Police say they foiled a second attack hours later in the town of Cambrils, also on the country's eastern coast, fatally shooting five people. The driver in the Barcelona attack is still at large.

Front pages of newspapers around the world carried stories of the attack. "Terrorists in the heart of Barcelona,"declared Italian paperLa Repubblica. German publication Göttinger Tageblatttook the pulse of the city: "Barcelona in shock" read its headline, while Spain's La Razonoffered a resonant message with a stark cover:"United against terrorism".
