ISIS celebrates Barcelona attack after claiming responsibility for it

After claiming responsibility for Thursday's vehicular attack in Barcelona, the Islamic State’s Amaq news agency said: “The perpetrators of the Barcelona attack are soldiers of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to calls for targeting coalition states”—a reference to a US-led coalition against the Sunni militant group.


The claim could not immediately be verified.


If the involvement of Islamist militants is confirmed, it would be the latest in a string of attacks in the past 13 months in which they have used vehicles to bring carnage to the streets of European cities.
