US Warned Spain of Barcelona Attack Risk
Local Editor

US security agencies warned Spain in May that Daesh [Arabic Acronym for the terrorist "ISIS"/ "ISIL] group was planning an attack in Barcelona, where the terrorists claimed a deadly van rampage earlier this month, local media said Thursday.

Spain

The daily El Periodico de Cataluna reported that the US National Counterterrorism Center [NCTC] alerted Spanish intelligence officers to the threat weeks before a man plowed his vehicle into crowds of tourists along Barcelona's Las Ramblas boulevard on August 17, killing 14 people.

"Unsubstantiated information of unknown veracity from late May 2017 indicted that the Daesh of Irak and ash-Sham was planning to conducted unspecified terrorist attacks during the summer against crowded tourist sites in Barcelona, Spain, specifically [Las Ramblas] street," according to an NCTC briefing note published by the paper.

A spokesman for Spain's CNI intelligence agency refused to "confirm or deny anything on communication with other intelligence services."

The interior ministry did not respond to a request for comment.

But the Madrid-based Cadena SER radio station quoted "anti-terror sources" suggesting that the document published by El Periodico de Cataluna was authentic.

Spain is still recovering from the twin August vehicle attacks that left a total of 16 people dead and more than 120 wounded in Barcelona and the seaside resort of Cambrils further south.

Daesh claimed both attacks.
