Taipei--A total of 353 Taiwanese tourists were visiting Spain when a terror attack occurred in Barcelona on Thursday and two members of a group from Taiwan's Spunk Tour were injured during the attack, Tourism Bureau officials confirmed on Friday.
A mother and daughter who were part of the 30-member tour group from Taiwan suffered a fractured shoulder and slight abrasions respectively, when the terror attack occurred in the Spanish city. They were treated and released from hospital and have since returned to their hotel, according to the officials.
The officials said that other Taiwanese tourists, including those from Lion Travel Service and South East Travel Service, are safe.
In the wake of the attack the Spunk Tour group's flight from Barcelona to Paris could be delayed, so the group may not return to Taiwan on Aug. 19 as scheduled.
The bureau has instructed all local tour agencies to pay close attention to the developing situation in Spain and prioritize the safety of travelers.
