The attempted knife attack in a police station on Monday early morning is being treated as a "terrorist attack," said the Catalan police in the afternoon, some six hours after the events. According to the corps, the individual, of Algerian origin, went to the Mossos d'Esquadra police station in Cornellà de Llobregat just before 6am. Carrying a knife of "considerable size," he leaped on the officer who opened the door with "clear intention" to kill members of the Mossos d'Esquadra, said an official in a press conference.
