( -- On Thursday, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said there will be questions about whether “if what happened in Barcelona was at all a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville,” after it was reported that a large van ran into pedestrians in Barcelona, leaving at least 13 dead and many injured.

“There will be questions about copycats, there will be questions if what happened in Barcelona was at all, at all a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia even though there may be different characters, different political ambitions,” said Wolf Blitzer.

“They used the same killing device, a vehicle going at high speed into a group, a large group of pedestrians,” he said.

There have been at least 6 attacks involving vehicles running into pedestrians in Europe over the last year.
