Pence: Barcelona terror attack images 'sicken us all'

Vice President Pence extended the United States' support to Barcelona, Spain, on Thursday following a deadly terrorist attack in the city that has left at least 13 dead and more than 50 others injured.

"I'd like to address the horrific terror attack that occurred just a few hours ago in Barcelona, Spain. The latest scenes of carnage and mayhem sicken us all. And as the president said earlier today, the United States condemns this terror attack, and we will do whatever is necessary to help," Pence said during remarks at the Panama Canal.

"Whoever is responsible should know the United States of America, along with our allies, will find and punish those responsible and drive the evil of radical Islamic terror from the face of the Earth," Pence said.

A van hit a crowd in a tourist area of Barcelona on Thursday. Authorities called it a terrorist attack, and it was condemned as such by U.S. officials, including President Trump.

“The United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help. Be tough & strong, we love you!” Trump tweeted earlier Thursday.
