Barcelona manifesto massively in response to the attacks

The woman who died today was hurt when a man ploughed a van through crowds of tourists on Spain's most famous street on August 17 - an attack that was claimed by the Islamic State group.

MADRID | A 51-year-old German woman died Sunday from injuries suffered in the August 17 vehicle attack in Barcelona, raising the overall death toll in Spain's recent attacks to 16, health officials in Catalonia said.

The investigation into the ISIL (also known as Daesh) cell behind the attacks has shown the group planned even more deadly carnage, but accidentally blew up a house in Alcanar where bombs were being built and gas tanks stored.

King Felipe VI marched alongside Rajoy and representatives of all of Spain's major political parties behind the first ranks.

Medical authorities said that 22 people wounded in the attacks are still being treated in hospitals.

Thai junta beefs up border controls after Yingluck court no- show
A few weeks later, her government was ousted by a military junta that remains in place today. "We are the majority", she adds. Opposition leaders were furious, suggesting that the proposal was actually created to help Yingluck's brother and his allies.

The demonstration follows last week's vehicle attacks that left more than a dozen people dead and hundreds injured.

The Spanish premier said Friday the king would be attending the march to demonstrate "his love for the people of Barcelona, of Cambrils, of Catalonia". Six of them remain in critical condition.

Spain's central, regional and local authorities tried to send an image of unity Saturday by walking behind the emergency workers, despite earlier criticism that national and regional authorities had not shared information about the attackers well enough with each other.

Rajoy stressed Friday that political unity, police coordination and worldwide cooperation are "the most important tools to defeat terrorists" and said that his government is ready to change laws "in order to fight the new forms of jihadi terrorism".

Following a week dominated by the response to the deadly attacks in and near Barcelona, Colau told reporters she wanted the "streets of Barcelona to be overflown by people".
