ETA called a permanent ceasefire in March and handed over a lot of it's weapons. Whoever is responsible are cunts and Europe should stop pussyfooting around and take some action.

I'm not saying it's the ETA, just that Spain has a history of violent separatists. It could be a couple of hyper-nationalist, anti-tourist Catalans, what with increasing tension as the referendum approaches, and several recent threats against tourists.

It is rumored they're barricaded in a restaurant. Nothing about shots or explosives in European news though.

What kind of action and against whom?

RE: Barcelona attack
They've identified one of them. A guy called Driss Oukabir. Apparently he's originally from Marseilles and lives in Catalonia.

EDIT: the article switched from Marseilles to Maghreb.

They've arrested someone, and they say that no one is holed up in a bar.

RE: Barcelona attack
Our beloved president just tweeted to Spain:

Quote:Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught. There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!

http://www.snopes.com/rumors/pershing.asp

The truth:

Quote:During a campaign rally in South Carolina, [Donald] Trump told his audience a story about General John Pershing executing Muslim prisoners in the Philippines. Trump said Pershing, in the early 1900’s, “caught 50 terrorists that did tremendous damage and killed many people and he took the 50 terrorists and he took 50 men and he dipped 50 bullets in pig’s blood.”
Trump went out to describe a mass execution shooting of 49 of the prisoners, with the last one being sent to tell the others what happened. It was Trump using this “story” to demonstrate that America needed to get tough on terrorism, using brutal methods, and that he would be the man to do it.
But the story is not true. There was no mass execution led by Pershing. That is a rumor created on the Internet.
A Chicago Daily Tribune article from 1927 has a story where Pershing had prisoners from the Moro Rebellion in the Philippines. The Moros were Muslims who resisted American or any other occupying force.
The Moros had swordsmen, called Juramentados, who were killing Christians in this uprising. It had to be stopped. General Pershing was given this difficult task.
The Tribune article says Pershing sprinkled some prisoners with pig’s blood, which the Juramentados believed would condemn them for eternity. But then Pershing let the prisoners go. He issued a warning to others about being sprinkled with the pig’s blood. The Tribune article said “those drops of porcine gore proved more powerful than bullets.”
There were no executions as described by Trump.
In fact, Pershing was more inclined toward peace talks with the Moros rather than violence.

RE: Barcelona attack
Catalan police confirmed they arrested two men in relation to the incident. A senior police official said the suspects were a Spanish national from Melilla and a Moroccan.

The Islamic State group said the attack was done by its "soldiers" via its Amaq propaganda arm. An alleged getaway van was found in a neighbouring small town. Catalan authorities have linked that vehicle to the attack.
