A third person has been arrested in connection with a suspected Islamist militant attack in the northeastern Spanish city of Barcelona on Thursday and another incident in Cambrils, Spanish police said on Friday.

"A third person has been detained in Ripoll in relation to the attacks," local Catalan police confirmed on Twitter.

The Barcelona attack left 13 dead and more than a hundred injured after the suspect drove a van into crowds along a busy tourist street. Police said they had also killed five attackers on Thursday night in Cambrils, a town south of Barcelona.
