Barcelona Police SHOOT DEAD Algerian Knifeman shouting 'Allahu Akbar — TERROR IN SPAIN

Spanish police officers in Barcelona Spain

The Islamic State group has frequently called on their followers to attack soldiers and police in France, who they see as a legitimate target because they represent the French state.

A female officer from the Catalan regional police force shot a man dead at around 6am on Monday morning after he entered a police station in Cornellà de Llobregat (Barcelona) carrying a knife and shouting "Allahu Akbar" (Allah [God] is the greatest).

Security was reinforced at police stations across the region following the incident.

He said the suspect repeatedly pressed the buzzer to be let in at around 5.45 a.m. and spoke with officers inside over an intercom. After they chose to let him in, he pulled out "a large knife" and lunged at officers, according to Comes.

Comes says "for the moment" the incident "is being treated as a terrorist act". Comes said police are investigating the man's background and are awaiting a warrant to search his apartment. He pulled out a knife and reportedly yelled "Allahu Akbar".

Sixteen people were killed August 17, 2017, when a van drove into crowds on Barcelona's popular Las Ramblas boulevard and in a knife attack in the nearby resort of Cambrils.

Intelligence services are helping with the investigation.

Similarly, the GDP growth at market prices clocked 7.68% for UPA 2 as against 7.33% for the first four years of the Modi government.

Comas, second-in-command of the Barcelona police, said authorities have found no evidence linking the attack in the Cornella district to last year's terror strikes in Barcelona and nearby Cambrills that killed 16 people.

The incident occurred just days after the first anniversary of a deadly jihadist rampage in Catalonia.

Police said the man "intended to attack police officers".

Officials said the attacker had "homicidal and premeditated will" when he stormed the police station with a knife of "considerable dimensions".

Catalan police officers stand guard at the entrance of a building during a raid, following an attack in Cornella de Llobregat early Monday.

He was shot dead after he entered a police station in Cornella, near Barcelona, just before 6.00am (04.00 GMT) "to attack the officers", Catalonia regional police said.
