Driver of Barcelona attack van is one of the men shot dead in Cambrils: Spanish media

BARCELONA (Reuters) - The driver of the van that plowed into crowds in Barcelona on Thursday, killing 13 people and injuring scores of others, was one of five men shot by police in the Catalan seaside resort of Cambrils hours later, Spain’s El Pais and El Periodico newspapers reported on Friday.

Catalan police had said earlier that it was possible that the driver was among those killed in the second incident, but they were not certain.
