This photo taken on August 18, 2017 shows the Italian and European Union flags at half mast on the facade of the Italian parliament in Piazza Montecitorio in Rome, one day after a van ploughed into a crowd in Barcelona, killing 13 persons and injuring over 100 on the Rambla boulevard. Drivers have ploughed on August 17 into pedestrians in two quick-succession, separate attacks in Barcelona and another popular Spanish seaside city, leaving 13 people dead and injuring more than 100 others. In the first incident, which was claimed by the Islamic State group, a white van sped into a street packed full of tourists in central Barcelona on the afternoon of August 17, knocking people out of the way and killing 13 in a scene of chaos and horror. Some eight hours later in Cambrils, a city 120 kilometres south of Barcelona, an Audi A3 car rammed into pedestrians, injuring six civilians -- one of them critical -- and a police officer, authorities said. / AFP PHOTO / FILIPPO MONTEFORTE (Photo credit should read FILIPPO MONTEFORTE/AFP/Getty Images) Photographer: FILIPPO MONTEFORTE/AFP
