'I am not afraid': Barcelona holds peace march

Spain PM wants improved anti-terror cooperation in EU

Fourteen of the now 16 deaths were caused by the attack in Barcelona, which occurred when a man plowed a van into crowds on the famous Las Ramblas boulevard, also injuring 120 people. Six of them were killed by police and two were killed in an explosion in the terrorists' bomb factory In Alcanar.

Already on Friday evening, thousands of people marched against terror in Cambrils, shouting "no tinc por", - as Catalans shouted last week, immediately after the attacks.

A woman places roses on the auto of Catalan regional policemen, known as Mossos d'Esquadra, in Barcelona on August 26, during a march against terrorism which slogan is #NoTincPor (I'm Not Afraid).

United by the slogan "I am not afraid", more than 100 000 people marched Saturday in Barcelona against jihadist violence, in the presence of the king of Spain, copiously booed by part of the protesters carrying flags, pro-independence catalans.

The five occupants of the Audi A3 then jumped out and went on a stabbing spree, killing a woman before being shot dead by police.

King Felipe VI marched alongside Rajoy and representatives of all of Spain's major political parties behind the first ranks. Another man was stabbed to death in a carjacking that night as the van driver made his getaway, and another woman died in an August 18 vehicle-and-knife attack in the nearby coastal town of Cambrils.

Two menare facing charges over the attacks, which were claimed by the Islamic State terrorist group.

Following a week dominated by the response to the deadly attacks in and near Barcelona, Colau told reporters she wanted the "streets of Barcelona to be overflown by people".

Medical authorities said on Saturday that 22 people wounded in the attacks are still being treated in hospitals. Eight are dead, while four appeared in court in Madrid last week.

Earlier this week, around 2,500 Muslim people marched in Barcelona to also decry terrorism and underline the peaceful nature of Islam.
