A Minute Of Silence As Spanish La Liga Kicks Off
The 2017/2018 season of the Spanish La Liga is due to kick off this weekend amidst ongoing investigation into Thursday's terror attack in Barcelona and Cambrils.
14 people have been confirmed dead, with over a hundred others injured.
The attacks will not stop La Liga from kicking off on Friday with fixtures between Leganes vs Alavés, and Valencia vs Las Palmas.
Other nine matches will go on as planned over the weekend, including Sunday’s Barcelona vs Real Betis fixture.
According to organisers, one-minute silence will be observed before all 10 matches are kicked off, to honour those who lost their lives in the attacks.
"LaLiga has asked the RFEF (Spanish Football Federation) to hold a minute's silence in all matches of the first day of the competition in LaLiga Santander and LaLiga 1l2l3," La Liga said in a statement.
After the first attack, Las Ramblas was hit by a second vehicle attack, injuring seven people. Five suspects have been killed and security presence is heavy in the vicinity.
