Deadly terrorist attacks over two days in Barcelona and Cambrils, Spain, have left 14 dead and more than 130 wounded.

In Barcelona, police on Friday were searching for the terrorist who escaped a day earlier after driving a van through the popular Las Ramblas pedestrian strip.

Seventy-five miles to the southwest, police shot and killed five suspected terrorists in Cambrils early Friday, after their vehicle plowed through a crowd of people. The attack killed one person.

Four people have been arrested.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks. The following are photos from that past 24 hours.
