King Felipe Joins Minute of Silence For Barcelona Terror Attack Victims

  August 18, 2017 at 5:20 pm by

King Felipe VI was present on Friday for a minute’s silence at the Plaza de Catalunya in Barcelona in memory of the victims of Thursday’s twin terrorist attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils.

He was joined by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, the President of the Generalitat of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont, the Mayor of Barcelona Ada Colau, amongst other government officials for the memorial.

15 people were killed in the two attacks (plus one in a related explosion in Alcanar), when terrorists drove vehicles at crowds in Barcelona’s La Rambla district and Cambrils. Over 100 people were injured. Five of the perpetrators were killed by police.

In the hours after the initial attack in Barcelona, the Spanish Royal Court tweeted: “They are assassins, criminals who won’t terrorise us. All of Spain is Barcelona. Las Ramblas will be everyone’s.”

The King and Queen Letizia will tomorrow visit hospitals treating the injured.

    E’un monarca perfetto. Peccato che abbia scelto quella moglie.

    “Todos somos Barcelona.” “All of Spain is Barcelona”. But they still continue with their suicidal politics. I just don’t understand what the political class is thinking in pursuing such a dangerous and unprofitable politics, regarding all these immigrants.
