United Nations has strongly condemned the terror attacks in Spain.
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said the United Nations stands in solidarity with the government and the people of Spain in the fight against terrorism and violent extremism. UN chief’s Deputy Spokesman Farhan Haq said in a statement that those responsible for this heinous violence will be swiftly brought to justice.
The Security Council, in a statement, also condemned the attack. The members of the Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security.
At least 13 people were killed and 100 injured yesterday in the first terror attack in Barcelona after a van rammed into a crowd of pedestrians and six civilians and one police officer were hurt in the second attack when a car drove into people in the Spanish seaside resort of Cambrils early today.
