Two explosions have ripped through a bakery in Barcelona this morning injuring at least seven people, it has been reported. The first and much larger blast occurred around 7am local time and was followed by a much smaller explosion.

They struck the bakery on the first floor of a seven-storey building on Carrer de la Marina, just a few blocks from the popular La Sagrada Familia tourist attraction. El Pais reported neighbours were being treated for smoke inhalation as authorities said it was likely caused by gas.

Neighbour Belen Ortega told the paper: “I heard a very strong explosion and the building shook. “I woke up, I saw flames and then smoke. I went to get my son and when I went out there were firefighters – they were very fast.” Jordi Canal, another neighbour, described seeing the bakery on fire and a lot of smoke coming out.

Police are investigating a suspected human trafficking ring after eight immigrants, including two children, were found dead inside a truck in a Walmart car park.

They are suspected to have died from heatstroke or dehydration after being locked in the lorry without air conditioning or water.

At least 30 more people have been taken to hospital, with at least 20 believed to be in a life threatening condition.

The lorry was found parked in a Walmart car park in San Antonio, Texas, after a manager suspecting it contained illegal immigrants contacted cops.

Speaking at the scene, Police chief William McManus said the driver of the video was in custody, KENS5 reported.

He said: “Late last night we had a call from a Walmart employee, to conduct a welfare check on a truck and trailer that was parked in the lot here.

“He was approached by someone from that truck who was asking for water, he came back with water, he called the police.

“We arrived on the scene and found eight people dead in the back of that trailer.

“There were a number of people who were transported to local hospitals, checking the video from the store we found that there were a number of vehicles that came in and picked up a lot of the folks from inside that trailer who survived that trip.”

Charles Hood, the San Antonio Fire Chief, told reporters the air conditioning was not working inside the lorry.

“Each one of them had heart rates of over 130 beats per minute.

“These people were inside this trailer without any signs of any water, so you’re looking at a lot of heatstroke, a lot of dehydration.

“We’re very fortunate that there wasn’t 38 of these people that were all locked inside the vehicle dead.”

Two German tourists have been killed and four of other nationalities wounded during a knife attack at a beach in Egypt.

The attack happened on Friday at a Red Sea resort in Hurghada, as police said the assailant swam from a nearby beach before stabbing people.

Security and medical sources had earlier reported the two women killed were Ukrainians, but Major General Mohamed El-Hamzawi, security manager of Red Sea province, said victims have been identified as Germans.

 All six victims are women, Egyptian authorities said.

It is not yet confirmed what nationalities the four wounded women are, with one report stating that three were from Serbia and one from Poland, while another said two Czech women had been injured.

The attacker was detained at the scene as an extraordinary image shows what appear to be hotel staff holding him down in the bottom of a luggage cart.

Authorities have not released a motive for his attack, but ISIS does operate within Egypt and has targeted tourists in the past.

Three foreign tourists were stabbed at the same resort in January 2016 by two suspected ISIS militants.

On that occasion the assailants – armed with a gun, a knife and a suicide belt – landed on the beach of a hotel in Hurghada by boat before attacking.
