THE AFTERMATH OF TWO DEADLY TERROR ATTACKS IN SPAIN At least 14 are dead and more than 100 injured after a van rammed into pedestrians in a popular tourist street in Barcelona Thursday afternoon. Police say they broke up a related second attack in Cambrils several hours later. Las Ramblas reopened Friday morning in a “show of defiance.” Global stocks fell in light of the attacks and political upheaval in the U.S. And here’s why President Donald Trump’s quick response to the Barcelona attack amplifies the dissonance with his actions on Charlottesville. [HuffPost] [Tweet | Share on Facebook]
