Suspected Driver in Barcelona Attack Killed by Police

Auxiliary Bishop Sebastia Taltavull called for peace and coexistence and prayed for a quick recovery for the more than 100 people injured on Thursday when a van plowed into pedestrians on Barcelona's popular Las Ramblas promenade, killing 13.

Police hunting the van driver behind the Barcelona terror attack say they have shot dead a suspect wearing what appeared to be a suicide belt.

Three other Moroccans and one Spaniard have also been detained.

The fugitive who mowed down tourists in Barcelona then stole a car and killed its owner as he made his getaway, Spanish authorities said as they raised the death toll in the attacks to 15.

Younes Abouyaaqoub was shot and killed by authorities in the town of Subirats near Barcelona.

Although he told prosecutors he had rented the van used in the Las Ramblas attack, he said he believed it was going to used for a house move.

The terrorists' broader plans are believed to have failed after a stockpile of gas canisters, to be used in an attack, blew up their safe house in Alcanar. He then hijacked a car and killed the driver - who police have confirmed as the 15th victim. Julian Cadman's mother is in serious but stable condition in a hospital after being injured in the Barcelona attack.

Barcelona terrorist Younes Abouyaaqoub

Earlier, authorities said they had been searching for Abouyaaqoub as the last member of a 12-person cell still at large.

The announcement came one day after France said it had increased security on the border with Spain amid fears Abouyaaqoub could cross into the country.

The suspect, Abdelbaki Es Satty, was the former imam at a mosque in the town of Ripoll, according to The Wall Street Journal. Trapero said investigators were using fingerprints from the vehicles to confirm the exact whereabouts of the assailants.

One woman was killed and six other people wounded, with police killing five "suspected terrorists" who were in the car and arresting four others.

People attended a Mass in memory for the victims of the Barcelona terror attack at the Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona Sunday. Outside the church, snipers were posted on rooftops surrounding the landmark building by Gaudi, while heavily armed police stood guard as hundreds of people gathered under grey skies.

Said Oukabir, the father of the brothers, said he was 'in shock' that his sons were suspected of involvement in the attacks.

The Spain resident lived in the town of Ripoll to the north of Barcelona, according to media reports.
