A driver killing at least 14 people and injuring more than 100. Robin, this morning an American woman is now pleading for help trying to find her husband after they were separated during that attack. And that incident is now being linked to two others in Spain, the latest where police took down five terror suspects. Also overnight monuments around the world lighting up or going dark in solidarity with Spain including the world trade center right here in New York. And just an hour ago a moment of silence in Barcelona. The king of Spain and hundreds there remembering the victims. We do have team coverage this morning starting with ABC's James Longman who is in Spain for us at the scene. Good morning, James. Reporter: Good morning, David. A terror attack right in the heart of Barcelona and we are on the street where that van plowed people down. Now a vigil held in the square earlier. Last night a horrific terror attack that killed and injured scores of people. Shots ring out in the coastal town of cambrils. Five suspected terrorists shot and killed after driving over pedestrians. One of those suspects seen here. Six bystanders and one police officer wounded in what came at the end of a shocking 24 hours along the coast.
