Barcelona Attack Update: Massive House Explosion Miles Away Believed To Be Related

Filed under: ViolenceViral: News

At least 13 are dead at last count after the devastating attack in Barcelona on Thursday, in which a small group of attackers drove a van into a crowded area.

But the death toll may be even higher as a fatal bomb blast on Wednesday night has now been linked to the attack.

Police say one person was killed and at least seven were injured in the explosion, which destroyed one house and damaged all the adjacent ones.

The house was in a residential area in Alcanor, about 120 miles south of Barcelona. Officials say the explosion was caused by butane gas, of which around 20 bottles were found in the wreckage — far more gas than what a normal house could use.

Circumstances around this explosion have not yet been confirmed, but experts are currently speculating based on the amount of gas that this was part of a larger bomb attack plan, and that it may have gone wrong.

Donald Trump Continues To Spread False Story About General Pershing's Pig Blood Bullets After Barcelona Terrorist Attack

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpViral: NewsControversy

No one has ever accused Donald Trump of being a history buff.

Which, you know, is pretty terrifying considering he's the President of the United States.

True to form, in response to Thursday's terrorist attack in Barcelona, Trump encouraged his followers to "study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught" because, he says, "there was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!"

Just one problem: this story that Trump continues to refer to (he also mentioned the anecdote on the campaign trail) is a story about a general allegedly using pig's blood on bullets to stop a Muslim uprising in the Philippines. Historians have labeled this tall tale as a myth.

no title

It's definitely too late now to say sorry.

On Tuesday, Justin Bieber was driving through Barcelona, on the way to his next show on the Purpose World Tour. But, as he was cruising through the streets of Spain, he passed a horde of Beliebers.

At the time, his car was going slow enough that one fan — while running alongside the vehicle — was able to reach his arm all the way inside the open window.

As the Belieber was trying to get a handful of his idol, the singer attempted to get the follower to back off by punching him square in the face!

Now, we understand Justin totally has every right to not be touched without consent. However, this sort of violence is not okay.

After the hitmaker had taken off, video showed the superstar's victim had been clocked so hard that his mouth was bleeding! Ouch.

Click here to watch the whole thing go down.

Is this really how you treat the people who made you the A-lister that you are, Justin?!
