Spain's king and queen and its prime minister will be attending a solemn Mass at Barcelona's Sagrada Familia Basilica for the victims of the terror attacks that killed 14 people and wounded over 120.

Spain's King Felipe VI, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and Catalonia's regional President Carles Puigdemont attended the mass led by Cardinal Joan Josep Omella, the archbishop of Barcelona.

Recall, August 17, at about 17:05 local time in Barcelona a white van drove onto the sidewalk Las Ramblas and made arrival on pedestrians. Some120 people were also injured.

Outside the church, snipers were posted on rooftops surrounding other landmark buildings.

"What happened in Las Ramblas is really hard for us; we go for walks there often". And here we are.

Jay Z's tribute to Chester Bennington
JAY-Z paid homage to the late Chester Bennington Saturday by performing "Numb" at a United Kingdom concert. Jay Z performed the song in honour of Bennington and it was really something special.

She said: "It is deeply upsetting when innocent people are put at risk in this way when going about their daily lives".

Later Sunday, almost 100,000 people are expected at Barcelona's Camp Nou stadium for FC Barcelona's first game of the season, which will be marked by a minute of silence for the victims. A total of 14 fatalities occurred in two terrorist attacks in the Spanish cities of Barcelona and Cambrils that also hurt about 126 people of 34 different nationalities.

A terrorist cell responsible for the attacks in Barcelona's central Las Ramblas area and Cambrils coastal town was originally plotting a much bigger attack with explosives at the Sagrada Familia cathedral, local media reported, citing sources. Police shot and killed the five attackers, some of whom were wearing fake explosive belts. A French security official also told Associated Press that Spain had flagged a Renault Kangoo utility vehicle - believed to have been rented by a suspect - that could have already crossed the border.

According to the police of Catalonia, a bomb that militants planned to use to those used by the terrorist group "Islamic state", they were collected in one of the villages in Alcanar.

Trapero said authorities believe there were 12 members of the cell that carried out the attacks, but that none of them had any previous links to terrorism. Police believe Abdelbaki Es Satty radicalized the young men in the extremist cell, which may have accidently blown up a house in the seaside town of Alcanar.
