BARCELONA: A ceremony was held in Barcelona on Monday in memory of the 16 people who died during attacks in the Spanish city and a nearby resort three years ago.
Wearing face masks and maintaining social distance because of the pandemic, dozens of relatives of the victims laid white carnations on the famous Las Ramblas boulevard where on August 17, 2017 a van mowed down pedestrians leaving behind a trail of bodies.
Health Minister Salvador Illa and the president of the regional government of Catalonia, Quim Torra, were also in attendance.
