Once again, terrorists have used vehicles to carry out deadly attacks – this time in Spain.

At least 14 people were killed in two attacks in different areas. More than 100 others were injured.

至少有14人在不同地区发生的两起袭击中遇难,还有100多人受伤。

On Thursday, a van struck a crowd on a busy street in the Spanish city of Barcelona. The attack took place on Las Ramblas, a road leading from the center of the city to the coast. The area, which has many stores and restaurants, was filled with people enjoying a summer day.

周四,一辆货车冲入了西班牙巴塞罗那市一条繁忙街道的人群之中。这起袭击发生在兰布拉大街,这是从市中心通往海边的一条道路。该地区拥有很多商店和餐馆,街上满是享受夏日的人们。

Police said the driver of the vehicle fled on foot.

警方表示,车上的司机下车跑了。

The second attack happened early Friday about 130 kilometers south of Barcelona in the seaside town of Cambrils. Attackers drove a passenger car into a crowd, killing one person and injuring at least five others.

第二起袭击事件于周五早上发生在巴塞罗那市以南130公里左右的海滨城市坎布里尔斯。袭击者驾驶一辆客车冲入人群,导致1人遇难,还有至少5人受伤。

Police said they killed five attackers after the incident in Cambrils. Spanish officials said it appeared the attackers had explosives tied to their bodies, but the bombs turned out to be fake.

Officials said at least four suspects – three Moroccans and a Spaniard – were arrested.

有关官员表示,至少还有4名嫌犯,包括3名摩洛哥人和1名西班牙人被逮捕。

One of the arrests was made in Alcanar, a town south of Barcelona. Police said one person was killed in an explosion at a home there on Wednesday. The area is being studied for possible links to the other attacks. Police reportedly believe people at the home may have been “preparing an explosive device.”

其中一起逮捕发生在巴塞罗那南部小镇阿尔卡纳尔。警方表示,有一名男子在该镇周三发生的一起房屋爆炸中死亡。警方正在研究该地与其它袭击之间可能存在的联系。据报道,警方认为屋中这人可能是在试图制造爆炸装置。

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said the latest attacks showed that the fight against terrorists is a “global battle.” He noted that, in his opinion, terrorism is Europe's biggest problem.

西班牙首相马里亚诺·拉霍伊(Mariano Rajoy)表示,最近发生的袭击事件表明打击恐怖分子是一场“全球战争。”他指出,在他看来,恐怖主义是欧洲面临的最大问题。

The killings in Spain followed several deadly attacks in Europe in recent years, several of which also involved vehicles.

西班牙的袭击事件发生在欧洲近年的几起致命袭击之后,其中有几起就涉及到了汽车。

In June, three attackers drove a van into people walking on the London Bridge. The attackers then stabbed people in nearby bars. A total of eight people were killed and more than 40 others injured.

今年六月,三名袭击者驾驶一辆面包车冲入伦敦桥上的行人当中。然后这些袭击者在附近一家酒吧劫持了人质。这起事件一共导致了8人遇难,还有40多人受伤。

A vehicle also was used last weekend to attack protesters in the American city of Charlottesville, Virginia. A man described by a former teacher as a supporter of the American Nazi Party drove his car into the crowd. One woman was killed in the attack. Two Virginia state policemen responding to the violence died in a helicopter crash.
