The assailants used vehicles and knives in Spain's deadliest attack in more than a decade.

She was left in a critical condition when a militant drove the rented vehicle into crowds in Barcelona's famous Las Ramblas boulevard on August 17.

Dissidents additionally added their tributes to a pile of roses laid at Las Ramblas, where a driver furrowed a van into swarms on August 17, executing 14 individuals and leaving more than 100 others harmed.

Just a few hours prior to being eliminated by police forces in Cambrils, three of the terrorists suspected in carrying out the car-ramming attacks in Catalonia were recorded joking around at a local gas station.

The five occupants of the Audi A3 then jumped out and went on a stabbing spree, killing a woman before being shot dead by police.

That attack has now killed 14 people, and two others died during the driver's getaway and in a separate auto and knife assault in the Catalan coastal resort of Cambrils.

Police said they believed a 12-man terror cell had planned and carried out the attacks.

Eight suspects are dead, two are jailed under preliminary charges of terrorism and homicide and two more were freed by a judge but will remain under investigation. An investigation into the cell's possible worldwide links is ongoing.

Thousands of people marched through the streets of Cambrils in Spain's Catalonia region, as part of an anti-terrorism protest following last week's deadly vehicle attack in the city in which one woman died.

Some pro-independence marchers turned out bearing their flags and booed both the king and the prime minister. The march will be led by the taxi drivers, emergency workers and ordinary people who helped victims in the initial moments after the attack.

Members of Spain's Islamic community marched alongside King Felipe and Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.

Fourteen people died in the Las Ramblas attack.
