A 51-year-old German woman died on Sunday 10 days after she was injured in a militant van attack in Barcelona, authorities said, bringing the total death toll from this month’s twin assaults in Spain to 16.

She was left in a critical condition when a militant drove the rented vehicle into crowds in Barcelona’s famous Las Ramblas boulevard on Aug. 17.
