MOSCOW, August 18. /TASS/. The Catalan police officially confirmed eliminating four terrorists in the Spanish city of Cambrils, according to the police Twitter account.

"Four people were killed in Cambrils, another is arrested, wounded," the police said. The fifth person has since died.

According to media reports, the suspects tried to commit a terrorist act in Cambrils, similar to what happened in Barcelona earlier.

At least seven people, including a policeman, were wounded in the attack, according to Twitter account of emergency services in Catalonia.
