President Donald Trump on Thursday condemned the terrorist attack in Barcelona, killing 13 and injuring as many as 50 others, saying that the United States "will do whatever is necessary to help."

Trump took to Twitter:

First lady Melania Trump also tweeted on the attack:

Thirteen people were killed and 50 injured after a white van jumped up onto a sidewalk and sped down a pedestrian zone in Barcelona's historic Las Ramblas district Thursday, plowing into tourists and residents.

Police called the incident a terror attack — and Catalan police said one man was arrested and they were "treating him as a terrorist."

No other immediate information was released on the suspect or who might be responsible.

According to authorities, the attack left dozens of people sprawled out on the ground in the city in northeastern Spain, some spattered with blood and others coping with broken limbs.

In Washington, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sent condolences to the families and victims of the assault, saying that the incident "has the hallmarks of what appears to be yet another terrorist attack."

He said U.S. diplomats in Spain are currently assisting Americans there and asked those who are safe to notify their friends and families.

"Terrorists around the world should know that the United States and our allies are resolved to find you and bring you to justice," Tillerson said.
