BARCELONA (Reuters) - Security footage released on Friday showed pedestrians narrowly avoiding a white van as it raced down Las Ramblas boulevard at high speed in a deadly militant attack in Barcelona on Aug. 17.

The video showed passersby running to avoid the speeding vehicle and taking shelter in a storefront.

Thirteen people died and more than 100 others were injured in Spain's deadliest attack in more than a decade. Two others were killed during the driver's getaway and in a separate attack in the town of Cambrils.
