Catalan authorities say a woman injured in an attack in a popular seaside town south of Barcelona has died, bringing the death total from twin terrorist assaults in Spain to 14.

The woman, whose name was not released, is the first victim to die as the result of a second attack late Thursday in Cambrils, about 130 kilometers (80 miles) south of Barcelona.

It came hours after a van slammed into pedestrians on a busy Barcelona promenade, killing 13 people and injuring over 100 others. Police said the two attacks were linked.

In Cambrils, police shot dead five people wearing fake bomb belts who plowed into a group of tourists and residents with a car. In all, six people, including a police officer, were injured in the Cambrils incident.
