Five jihadis killed and seven people injured as gunfire erupts in beach resort south of Barcelona in new terror outrage hours after 13 died in van attack on Las Ramblas, by David Burke.

Four terror suspects have been killed and one injured in a shootout 70 miles from Barcelona as police carried out an operation linked to yesterday’s massacre, which claimed 13 lives and left more than 100 injured.

Shocking video footage shows bodies strewn across the ground after armed officers gunned down the terrorists who had explosives strapped around their waists. …

Seven innocent people – including an officer – were injured and witnesses have said the shooting happened close to a taxi rank in the coastal town. …

Reports suggested the group had attempted to carry out a similar attack to that on Las Ramblas by driving a van at pedestrians but their vehicle overturned and they were shot by officers. …

A man was last night shot dead on the outskirts of Barcelona after speeding through a roadblock, injuring two police officers. It is not known, however, if he was linked to the terror plot.

Two men, a Spanish national and a Moroccan, have been arrested, but neither was at the wheel of the Fiat van which mounted the pavement and sped into crowds of pedestrians.

Less than 24 hours earlier, an explosion at a house in Alcanar, 125 miles south of Barcelona, is believed to have been caused by butane canisters linked to the terror attack. A terror cell is thought to have been planning to fill the van with explosives.

At this point, is anyone at all surprised?

Why isn’t anything being done by our leaders to prevent this? All they do is stand around and mumble “solidarity: and “religion of peace”. Why are they so determinedly immune to the obvious truths about Islam? Someone else’s problem perhaps?
