Reports of another deadly vehicle attack in Europe struck social media Wednesday. This time, the Spanish tourist hotspot of Barcelona was targeted in what police suspect was a terror-related incident.

It appears a van ran over a curb and rammed into a crowd of people near the heart of the city. Spanish police say at least 13 people are dead and dozens have been injured in the incident.
