The wording echoed previous claims of responsibility for atrocities that were inspired by the group's propaganda but not directed by militants overseas.

Police on Friday shot and killed five people carrying bomb belts who were connected to the Barcelona van attack, as the manhunt intensified for the perpetrators of Europe's latest rampage claimed by the Islamic State group.

Turnbull said Saturday that the boy's mother was badly injured and is in a hospital following Friday's attack at the Las Ramblas promenade. One of four suspects later arrested was detained in Alcanar.

Police in France are looking for the driver of a white Renault Kangoo van that may been involved in the Barcelona attack.

In fact, a safe-house in Alcanar (about 203 kilometers or 126 miles south of Barcelona) exploded on August 16 while at least two people were making the explosives for vehicle bombs.

Three people have so far been arrested in connection with the attacks, which left 14 people dead and more than 100 injured.

At least one American was killed in the attacks, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said.

Spanish authorities said citizens from 34 different countries were among the dead and injured.

Catalan police have identified the five terrorists who were shot dead in Cambrils.

They shot and killed five people earlier today who were wearing fake bomb belts as they attacked the seaside resort of Cambrils with a speeding auto. The attack in Barcelona, capital of the Spanish region of Catalonia, was therefore "more rudimentary than they originally planned", Trapero said.

Thwarted by the accidental explosion, and possibly alarmed at the attention it had drawn, it appears that the surviving members of the cell scrambled to mount an alternative plan.

Defiant crowds later chanted "I am not afraid" in Catalan.

- Police said the person killed was a Spanish national and was not on police radar. "I cannot understand how could this happen", said Jose, an eyewitness of Thursday's attack.

But the suspects, who had fake explosives strapped to their bodies, were able to drive their vehicle into a crowd of people, killing one person and injuring six.

"(The police) were just everywhere, they were walking with their guns, and it was a bit surreal", said Gurzu, who went to the scene of the attack about two hours after it took place to see what was going on.

Bruno Gulotta, 35, was on vacation in Barcelona with his partner Martina and two children, 5-year-old Alessandro and daughter Aria, who is a few months old.
