Barcelona, Aug 17 (AFP) A driver deliberately rammed a van into a crowd on Barcelona's most popular street today, killing at least two people before fleeing to a nearby bar, police said. Officers in Spain's secondlargest city said the ramming on Las Ramblas was a terrorist attack and a police source said one suspect had left the scene and was holed up in a bar . A local security source told AFP that at least two people had died in the van attack and around 20 were wounded. The police source said they were hunting for a total of two suspects. The famous Las Ramblas boulevard is one of Barcelona's busiest streets, normally thronged with tourists and street performers until well into the night. Huge collision on Las Ramblas in Barcelona by an individual driving a van, many injuries, a police statement said. The area around the incident was cordoned off, with several ambulances and police vehicles on the scene, an AFP correspondent said. Don't go near the affected zone, Catalan police tweeted. Witness Aamer Anwar told Britain's Sky News television that he was walking down Las Ramblas, which he described as jampacked with tourists, when the attack happened. All of a sudden, I just sort of heard a crashing noise and the whole street just started to run, screaming. I saw a woman right next to me screaming for her kids. Police were very, very quickly there, police officers with guns, batons, everywhere. Then the whole street started getting pushed back. Vehicles have been used in several terror attacks in Europe in recent years, including a jihadist massacre that claimed 86 lives in the French Riviera city of Nice. Spain had so far been spared the kind of extremist violence that rocked nearby France, Belgium and Germany. But it was hit by what is still Europe's deadliest jihadist attack in March 2004, when bombs exploded on commuter trains in Madrid, killing 191 people in an attack claimed by Al Qaedainspired extremists. A van has ploughed into crowds in Barcelona's famous Las Ramblas tourist area. People were killed and injured as the vehicle sped along the pedestrianised area, sending many fleeing for cover in shops and cafes. Eyewitnesses said the van had deliberately targeted people before coming to a stop. El Pais newspaper said the driver of the vehicle had fled on foot after mowing down dozens of people. Media reports say police are treating the incident as a terror attack, and that one or two armed men have now barricaded themselves inside a bar in the area. Live updates Steven Turner, who works in the area, told the BBC: People in my office saw a van ramming into people on Las Ramblas. I saw about three or four people lying on the ground. There are lots of ambulances and armed police with assault rifles around now. Details of this incident are still unclear, but vehicles have been used to ram into crowds in a series of attacks across Europe since July last year.
