Spain: Muslims screaming “Islamist slogans” drive car into airport terminal, cops not treating it as terror attack
“Despite reports that the perpetrators shouted Islamist slogans, the police are not currently treating the incident as a terrorist attack.”

The Mossos d’Esquadra, Barcelona’s police force, confirmed that two men attempted to storm the Terminal 1 bulking at the El Prat international airport at approximately 5am local time on Friday.
