Portugal's president and prime minister have attended the funerals of a Portuguese granddaughter and grandmother killed in last week's attack in Barcelona.

Maria de Lurdes Ribeiro, 74 years old, and 20-year-old Maria Correia were in the Spanish city to celebrate the grandmother's birthday when a van mowed down pedestrians in Las Ramblas.

Spanish King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia sent a message of condolences to the ceremony near Lisbon, calling the Barcelona attack "cruel and despicable."
