Update 1:08 p.m.: Barcelona authorities have reported that there has been at least one fatality, with another 32 people injured, ten of whom are in serious condition. Police have also confirmed at least one arrest.

The Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS) has claimed responsibility for the attack according to the terrorist group's AMAQ news agency.

"The Australian Government condemns this brutal and deliberate act clearly designed to harm tourists on holidays in Spain", she said.

A Catalan government official said the death toll could rise above the 13 so far confirmed.

One of the vans used to carry out the murderous rampage at the heart of the city was rented by a man called Driss Oukabir, Spanish police said. It was as if it was driving through a field of corn'.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson offered condolences for the "loss of life and injuries" of "so many innocent people, yet again". He is believed to have spent time in prison in Spain.

"Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught".

Police cordoned off the street - a popular tourist destination - and ordered nearby stores and Metro stations to close. Agence France-Presse cited a source that said two people had been killed.

Eyewitness Tom Gueller has told the BBC about how he was forced to flee the scene.

Police are still hunting for the driver of the white Fiat van, who escaped the scene on foot, Police Major Josep Lluis Trapero told a news conference on Thursday night.

The driver stopped opposite to where Sissing was standing, he said, and then the driver kept going.

"We are thinking with profound sadness of the victims of the revolting attack in Barcelona - with solidarity and friendship alongside the Spanish people", tweeted spokesman Steffen Seibert. The school said its travel party was safe.

"Police officers who got there just started screaming at people to move back, move back".

One of the suspected terrorists in the attack has been killed in a shootout with police in Sant Just Desvern municipality in the west of Barcelona, local newspaper La Vanguardia reports.
