With lengthy applauses, after a minute's silence, thousands of people have paid tribute today to the victims of two recent terror attacks that shook the Spanish cities of Barcelona and Cambrils.
At the crowded tribute, too close to the place where last Thursday 13 civilians passed away and a hundred were injured when they were mowed down by a van, the highest local authorities attended, including King Felipe VI.
At the rally, held in the Catalonia Square, the Prime Minister of Spain, Mariano Rajoy; President of the Generalitat (Catalan Executive), Carles Puigdemont; and leaders of main political parties, also attended such an important tribute.
After the minute's silence, a long applause shook the central square, located a few meters away from the tourist La Rambla, Barcelona, which yesterday experienced scenes of panic when a driver ran over dozens of pedestrians.
More than two minutes of applause, in memory of the victims, finished the quiet mass meeting, where people unanimously cried: 'I am not afraid.'
The Congress of Deputies, headquarters of Madrid Community Government, and of political parties and other institutions joined the mourning and solidarity acts.
Rajoy decreed a three-day official mourning for what he called a savage Jihadist attack.
