Bomb squads were dispatched to the central Sants station to conduct checks for possible explosives, according to a spokeswoman for the Mossos d’Esquadra regional police.

Spanish state-owned train infrastructure management company ADIF wrote later on Twitter that normal operations were resuming at the station.

Meanwhile, police also started evacuating a train station in the Spanish capital of Madrid after Barcelona.
