Police officials have already called this a terrorist attack.


Official word at the time of this writing lists the number of dead at only one, though multiple media outlets, citing police sources, place the number around 13 dead.


There are also unconfirmed reports of a hostage situation in a nearby restaurant – did the terrorists flee the scene and take hostages? As with all breaking news, we just don’t know yet.


Understandably, everything in Barcelona is chaotic as police try to find the attackers and tend the high number of injured.
