Far-right protesters and anti-fascist groups clashed on Friday (August 18) at Las Ramblas Boulevard in central Barcelona a day after van a van plowed into crowds killing 14 people and leaving dozens injured.
It was the latest of a string of attacks across Europe in the past 13 months in which militants have used vehicles as weapons - a crude but deadly tactic that is near-impossible to prevent and has now killed nearly 130 people in France, Germany, Britain, Sweden and Spain.
As far-right protesters gathered at the famous boulevard for a march in which slogans against migrants and Muslims were seen, hundreds of anti-fascists gathered a few hundred metres away.
There was physical confrontation between some protesters on both sides.
