Woman escapes 3 terror attacks in 3 months
    2017-August-22  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AN Australian woman experienced her third European terrorist attack in just three months, after being caught up in Thursday’s horrific events in Barcelona.

Julia Monaco was in London during the deadly London Bridge attack and in Paris when an assailant claiming to be a “soldier” of Islamic State attacked a police officer with a hammer.

Monaco, who only left Australia three months ago, had her narrowest escape Thursday when a van rammed into a crowd at Las Ramblas, killing 13 people.

The 26-year-old Melbourne woman hid in a shopping mall in Placa de Catalunya during the attack when the van entered the pedestrianized strip nearby.

Speaking to Australian radio station 3AW, she described the panic in the mall but said it had not deterred her from continuing her travels.

“I feel a bit rattled; it’s not how I really expected today to go,” she said. “But I don’t feel like I want to go home. I feel like I want to stay here and not let them, whoever they might be, win.”

In June, Monaco was among those under lockdown in the Tube in London when a van mounted the pavement at London Bridge and struck pedestrians before the attackers ran into a nearby pub, stabbing people.

Eight people were killed and at least 48 were injured in the terrorist attack.

Just days later, the young woman was in Notre Dame in Paris when a police officer was attacked outside the famous Notre Dame Cathedral.
