U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday called for an end to radical Islamic terrorism, following two attacks in Spain a day earlier.

"Radical Islamic Terrorism must be stopped by whatever means necessary! The courts must give us back our protective rights. Have to be tough," he tweeted.

In the first attack in Spain on Thursday, a van plowed into a crowd on the busy La Rambla pedestrian mall, killing 13 people.

Hours later, one person was killed in a similar attack in Cambrils, south of Barcelona. Security forces eliminated the five terrorists behind the attack.

Spanish authorities said the two attacks were related. The Islamic State (ISIS) group claimed responsibility.
