Terrorists attacked a popular tourist thoroughfare in Barcelona, Spain,when a van plowed into pedestrians, killing at least 13 people and injuring more than 100.

The attack left dozens of broken bodies littering the streets as terrified onlookers ran from the area in fear.

ISIS have claimed responsibility for the Barcelona attack via its Amaq news agency.

While Police said the incident was a terror attack, but later tweeted they could not confirm the driver’s motive.

Catalonia President Carles Puigdemont said two suspects were arrested but the driver of the van remains still at large as of 11 p.m. local time, according to a tweet from police.

Police Chief Josep Lluis Trapero said the suspects were apprehended in Ripoll and Alcanar, towns in Catalonia. One is Moroccan and the other is a Spanish national from Melilla, a Spanish city on Africa’s north coast that neighbors Morocco.

The attack was the deadliest in Spain since 2004, when al Qaeda-inspired militants detonated bombs on Madrid’s subway system, killing 191 and injuring more than 1,800.
