Half-a-million people have flooded the heart of Barcelona shouting "I'm not afraid", in a public rejection of violence following extremist attacks that killed 15 people, Spain's deadliest in more than a decade.
Emergency workers, taxis drivers, police and ordinary citizens who were first on the scene of the August 17 attack on the city's famed Las Ramblas boulevard led the march.
They carried a street-wide banner with black capital letters reading "No Tinc Por", which means "I'm not afraid" in the local Catalan language.
