Jihadist terror struck Barcelona, Spain today, murdering at least 12 and injuring more than 50 others, as the decimating toll rises.

ISIS has now claimed responsibility for this attack through its official news agency Amaq.

As Reuters reports:

It was not immediately clear how many attackers were involved. La Vanguardia newspaper said one of the suspected perpetrators had been killed in a shootout with police on the outskirts of Barcelona.

Witnesses said the van zigzagged down one of Barcelona's busiest tourist avenues, Las Ramblas, mowing down pedestrians and leaving bodies strewn across the ground.

Authorities are continuing their investigation to determine how this attack occurred and how many terrorists are responsible.

Please pray for the victims and their families. It is time for the world to unite to extinguish the global plague of ISIS.
