ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Germany stands united with Spain, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday (August 18), after attacks in and near Barcelona left 14 people dead. "Terrorism may inflict bitter and terribly sad hours upon us, as has happened in Spain, but it can never defeat us," Merkel said. She added she had spoken to representatives of the other parties in Germany and they had collectively decided to continue campaigning ahead of a Sept. 24 election but they would forego loud music and hold minutes of silence.
