Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday slammed the "horrific terror attack" in Barcelona that killed 13 and injured as many as 50 others, saying that "the United States stands ready to assist the people of Spain and find and punish those responsible."

"The latest scenes of carnage and mayhem sicken us all," Pence said in Panama City, where he is on a tour of Latin American countries.

"As the president [Donald Trump] said earlier today, the United States condemns this terror attack and we will do whatever is necessary to help."

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the assault, its Amaq news agency said.

"Whatever inspired today's terror attack, the United States stands ready to assist the people of Spain and find and punish those responsible.

"On this dark day," Pence said, "our prayers and the prayers of all the American people are with the victims, their families and the good people of Spain."

Pence later took to Twitter:
