Catalan Police (Mossos) confirmed to The Spain Report on Monday that officers were investigating the "ignition" of some kind of incendiary or explosive device outside a Mercedes-Benz showroom in Barcelona in the early hours of Sunday morning.

A Mossos spokeswoman avoided describing the event as an "explosion" and said no one had been injured. "Very light" damage had been caused to some property.

Unconfirmed media reports described the device as one or two gas bottles, and talked of "explosions" instead of the "ignition" or "deflagration" description used by police.
