Spain attacks: Police hunt Barcelona
Spain attacks: Police hunt Barcelona driver, probe suspected
An international manhunt was underway Saturday for the
driver of a van that killed 13 people in Barcelona as police probed the
wreckage of a suspected bomb factory for clues to the cell behind this week’s
two terror attacks in Spain.
The flattened ruins of a house in the village of Alcanar
have become the center of a massive police investigation into the terror cell
suspected of using the house to make bombs.
When an explosion destroyed the house Wednesday night,
killing one person and seriously injuring another, it set in train a series of
events culminating in the deaths in Barcelona and one more in a second attack
in the town of Cambrils.
A manhunt has been ongoing since a van plowed into
pedestrians Thursday afternoon on Las Ramblas in the heart of Barcelona, killing
13 and injuring 120.
Early Friday, a group of five attackers wearing fake suicide
belts drove into pedestrians in Cambrils, killing one and injuring six. Police
shot all five assailants dead but said late Friday it was “increasingly
unlikely” that the Barcelona driver was among them, Reuters reported.
A Catalan police spokesman on Saturday confirmed the names
of three of the five suspects killed in Cambrils as Moussa Oukabir, Said Aallaa
and Mohamed Hychami.
He also said that Younes Abouyaaqoub, who’s wanted in
connection with the Barcelona attack, remains on the run. Spanish media report
that Abouyaaqoub is a 22-year-old Moroccan national.
