Catalan emergency services say six civilians and one police officer injured in Cambrils

MADRID (Reuters) - Catalan emergency services said six civilians and a police officer had been injured in an attack in the town of Cambrils, which police said was linked to Thursday’s Barcelona van attack.

Catalan police said on Twitter that a bomb squad in Cambrils would carry out several controlled explosions after they determined that the attackers were carrying explosive belts.

Police shot four of the attackers dead and left another injured during the operation earlier.
