ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Spain's King Felipe led a minute's silence on Friday (August 18), one day after a van drove into crowds in Barcelona killing 13 people, and a similar incident in Cambrils killed one. The king was joined by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and other government officials in Barcelona's Plaza de Catalunya. A sweeping anti-terrorism operation was launched after Thursday's (August 17) attack with police shooting dead five would-be attackers in Cambrils, a town south of Barcelona. Islamic State said the perpetrators of Thursday's attack had been responding to its call for action, rampaging along Barcelona's most famous avenue, which was thronged with holiday-makers enjoying an afternoon stroll at the peak of the tourist season.
