Up to four jihadis killed as gunfire erupts in beach resort south of Barcelona

Up to five people are feared dead after gunfire erupted in a beach resort south of Barcelona amid fears of a new terror attack.

Shots were heard being fired during the early hours of Friday morning in the coastal town of Cambrils, 70 miles south of Barcelona.

At least three people have died and Catalan police said their operation against a possible 'terrorist attack' was ongoing.

It comes after police arrested a suspect who allegedly rented a getaway van to carry out the Barcelona terror attack.

Footage showed a man being detained by armed officers shortly after the attack which left at least 13 people dead and more than 100 others injured.

Spanish police said one of the vans used in the attack was rented by a Moroccan man 15 miles from where the atrocity was committed.
