There's been a second terror attack in Spain overnight.

Armed police have shot dead five men wearing fake bomb belts in the coastal town of Cambrils.

A third person has been arrested in connection with the terror attack in Barcelona.

In the second incident in the coastal town of Cambrils officers shot dead 5 men wearing bomb belts, after they drove through a road block into a crowd of people.

Authorities are linking it to yesterday's van attack in Barcelona where a van was driven into tourists on Las Ramblas.

13 people were killed and over 100 others injured - Islamic State has now claimed responsibity and three people have been arrested.

A home explosion on Wednesday in a town called Alcanar is also thought to be connected to the attacks in Cambrils and Barcelona.

Police think a bomb was being made in the house at the time.

Armed checkpoints are now being manned around Catalonia - a man has already been found stabbed to death in the passenger seat of a van in a fourth location, San Juice Desvern.
