A white van crashed into a large group of pedestrians near a popular tourist area in Barcelona, Spain on Thursday, August 17th. As a result, 13 people have died and at least 80 have been injured.
Investigation regarding the incident is still ongoing, but one suspect is reportedly in custody. It was also confirmed that ISIS did claim responsibility for the attack.
This horrible tragedy immediately brought people together in prayer for the victims, their families, and countries around the world. Even though democrats and republicans can’t agree on politics, they can agree that these horrifying acts of terrorism must come to an end.
Members from both sides of the political spectrum have released statements regarding the incident, including President Donald Trump and former president Barack Obama. Vice President Mike Pence also responded, and he didn’t hold back.
Pence appeared in Panama to address the Barcelona terror attack. His very bold statement drew praise across the nation when he stated, we must "find and punish those responsible.”
As Mike Pence said, please continue to pray for the victims of this horrible tragedy. In other breaking news, a shocking update recently took place in the Natalie Holloway case.
