A German woman, 51, has died of injuries sustained in the van attack in the Spanish city of Barcelona on 17 August, officials say.

Her death brings to 16 the number of people killed when Islamist militants struck in the city and the nearby town of Cambrils.

The attacks traumatised the region, Catalonia, six weeks before an outlawed referendum on independence from Spain.

King Felipe was booed when he joined a memorial march on Saturday.

A cell of 12 jihadists has been blamed for the attacks. Eight are dead, while four have appeared in court in Madrid.
