Examples: So keep a few things in mind. 1) Police are excluding no options at this point. 2) Suggestions were made on an international channel, starting August 24, continuing August 25. Many other suggestions were included. There was no mention of any specific means or weapon to be used in the metro. 3) At this point, there’s very little activity on Barcelona on #Telegram. 4) Investigation is ongoing.
