The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attacks on August 17-18 in Barcelona and Cambrils that left 15 dead and more than 120 injured. Authorities say 24 people remain in hospital, with five in critical condition and four in a serious condition.

A 51-year-old German woman has died ten days after she was injured in a militant van attack in Barcelona, authorities have said.

Spanish authorities are continuing to investigate the attacks, which injured 120 people.

Fourteen people died in the van incident and another two were killed in the driver's getaway and in a separate vehicle and knife assault in Cambrils early the next day.

A jihadist cell that killed 16 people in a double attack in Catalonia earlier this month managed to evade controls specifically meant to detect potential threats, Spain's interior minister said on Monday, promising to review procedures.

Far from the political dispute, the Barcelona attacks have made an already tense situation for both sides more fraught.
