Third Suspect Detained After Attacks in Spain

As the scope of the attacks began to emerge, perhaps the most troubling aspect was the apparent existence of a terrorist cell that coordinated the assailants’ actions that might, but for an accident while mixing chemicals for explosives, have been far more deadly.That mishap occurred just before midnight in the town of Alcanar, 120 miles southwest of Barcelona, and was first reported as a gas explosion. But as attacks unfolded in Barcelona Thursday afternoon and the resort town of Cambrils after midnight, the police soon made the connection to Alcanar.Continue reading the main storyThe attack in Cambrils, about 70 miles southwest of Barcelona, was halted by the police only after the driver of a compact Audi A3 rammed his vehicle into a group of pedestrians, the Catalan authorities said, according to news accounts. Seven people were injured.The Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia reported that the Audi had run through a security check at the entrance to the town, prompting a police chase. After driving into pedestrians, the five occupants emerged, wielding knives. […]

Van Hits Pedestrians in Deadly Barcelona Terror Attack

There have been other deadly attacks using vehicles that were not related to Islamist extremists. A British man rammed a rental van into a congregation of Muslims leaving prayers in North London during Ramadan, and a man who was part of white supremacist demonstrations in Charlottesville, Va., drove his car into a crowd Saturday, killing a woman.In March 2004, a series of bombs ripped through commuter trains in Madrid, killing 191 people and wounding more than 1,800. The bombings were carried out by a group of North African Islamists that intersected with a band of petty criminals.Leaders of European countries and cities that have suffered attacks quickly expressed support and solidarity with Barcelona.In Germany, which has been on alert for potential terrorist threats ahead of the general election on Sept. 24, members of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet expressed their solidarity with the Spanish people, following the news from Barcelona.“I am deeply shaken by the terrible news from Barcelona,” said Thomas de Maizière, the country’s interior minister. “Once again, terror has shown its grotesque face.”Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, said on Twitter that Barcelona and Paris “are cities of sharing, love and tolerance. Such values are stronger than this despicable and cowardly terrorism.” Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, said his city “stands with Barcelona against the evil of terrorism.”Reporting was contributed by Rukmini Callimachi, Michael Wolgelenter, Silvia Taulés, Eric Schmitt, Yonette Joseph, Raphael Minder and Mark Walsh.Continue reading the main story […]

Trump Ends C.E.O. Advisory Councils as Main Group Acts to Disband

“Intolerance, racism and violence have absolutely no place in this country and are an affront to core American values,” said a statement released by the council. “We believe the debate over forum participation has become a distraction from our well-intentioned and sincere desire to aid vital policy discussions on how to improve the lives of everyday Americans. As such, the president and we are disbanding the forum.”Before the president’s announcement, executives from his manufacturing council were expected to have a similar call Wednesday afternoon. The manufacturing panel has seen a wave of defections since Monday, as business chiefs who had agreed to advise the president determined that his remarks left them with no choice but to walk away.GraphicThe Business Leaders Who Were on Trump’s Advisory CouncilsThere was a mass exodus of executives from presidential advisory councils as they opposed stances taken by President Trump.OPEN GraphicTwo additional chief executives — Denise Morrison of Campbell Soup and Inge Thulin of 3M — had announced Wednesday morning they would resign from the manufacturing council.The defections left Mr. Trump all but isolated from the business leaders whose approval he covets.Members of the advisory group had stood with the president in recent months even as he advanced policies they vehemently opposed, including tough immigration policies and withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate accord.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

A few big-name corporate leaders released innocuous statements over the weekend condemning the violence by white supremacists in Charlottesville. But with the exception of Mr. Frazier, none appear to have directly condemned the president’s choice of words, which have been a lightning rod for Americans from many quarters, even among many Republican lawmakers and Trump supporters.

Transgender People Can Still Serve for Now, U.S. Military Says

PhotoGen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in Paris this month.Credit Stephen Crowley/The New York TimesWASHINGTON — The military’s policy permitting transgender individuals to serve remains in place, the country’s highest military officer said on Thursday, clarifying some of the confusion surrounding President Trump’s announcement on Twitter that transgender people would no longer be accepted or allowed in the military.In a letter to the military service chiefs, Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that the policy on who is allowed to serve will not change until the White House sends the Defense Department a rules change and the secretary of defense issues new guidelines.“In the meantime, we will continue to treat all of our personnel with respect,” General Dunford said in the letter, first reported by Reuters. “As importantly, given the current fight and the challenges we face, we will all remain focused on accomplishing our assigned missions.”VideoTrump’s Transgender Military Ban Prompts PushbackIn a move that caught many in Washington by surprise, President Trump issued via Twitter a ban on transgender people serving in the military.By AINARA TIEFENTHÄLER on Publish Date July 26, 2017.Photo by Justin Gilliland/The New York Times.Watch in Times Video »embed General Dunford’s guidance is the first indication from the Pentagon about one of the central questions that arose from Mr. Trump’s abrupt announcement, made in a series of tweets on Wednesday: What will happen to transgender people serving around the world?Continue reading the main storyMr. Trump’s announcement surprised military leaders at the Pentagon, who considered the matter largely settled after President Barack Obama last year granted transgender people the right to serve openly. It also infuriated civil rights groups, which threatened lawsuits, and created an uproar among transgender people on active duty.Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, did not answer on Wednesday when asked what would happen to those currently serving in the military, saying that the ban would need to be worked out with the Defense Department.
