“A person armed with a knife entered the police station in Cornella to assault the officers. The attacker was shot,” the Catalonia regional police stated on Twitter.
A police spokesman refused to touch upon native media studies that the person was from Algeria and had shouted “Allahu akbar” (God is biggest) in the course of the assault.
The incident occurred days after the primary anniversary of a lethal jihadist rampage in Catalonia.
Sixteen individuals had been killed on August 17, 2017, when a van drove into crowds on the favored Las Ramblas boulevard within the coronary heart of Barcelona and in a knife assault within the close by resort of Cambrils.
The Islamic State group claimed accountability for these assaults.
