& # 39; Local police and Mossos [Catalan police] acted very quickly. Thank you for your hard work. & # 39;
He added later: & although our police have merged efforts and arrested nine suspects, most from Barcelona, it is vital that we have more mosses in Badalona to help with prevention and prevent such cases & # 39;
Xavier Garcia Albiol, former mayor of Badalona, said: “The footage is very difficult. A brutal fight ended with a murder in the streets of Badalona. I am very concerned about the situation in some parts of the city. & # 39;
