Spain says man slain by cops was terror driver

Catalan police chief Josep Lluis Trapero said that explosives were found in the Alcanar property and that police "are working on the hypothesis that these attacks were being prepared in that house".

Spanish police confirmed Monday they have captured the man suspected of being the driver in last week's terror attack in Barcelona.

The Catalan police force responded Monday after several citizens in the town of Subirats reported a suspicious individual who fit the description of Abouyaaqoub, according to Catalan radio Cadena Ser.

A total of 15 people died as a result of the terrorist attacks in Catalonia on Thursday.

Said Aallaa and Mohamed Hycham were the other two suspects killed in the Cambrils attack that left one woman dead and five others injured after the men drove into pedestrians.

Police have revealed that he stole a car and killed its owner as he made his getaway after fleeing the carnage in Las Ramblas on foot.

A bomb squad and robot confirmed later that the explosive belt was fake.

Ripoll is about 200 miles away from the scene of the blast in which three people are believed to have been killed and one person injured.

It was Spain's worst militant attack in over a decade, with Islamic State claiming responsibility. Police shot dead the five attackers who were wearing fake bomb belts in Cambrils early Friday.

The previous death toll was 14 - 13 people killed in a van attack on Barcelona's Las Ramblas promenade on Thursday, and one woman killed hours later in Cambrils.

A house exploded in Alcanar, Spain, on Aug. 16.

"They have shot dead a suspect who could be the perpetrator of the attack", the source, who declined to be named had told AFP.

El Mundo reported that a witness had spotted the suspect near a petrol station and tipped off police.

We now know this man is Younes Abouyaaqoub, 22, that is, the van driver of Las Ramblas.

He had also stayed in Belgium for some three months last year, where he had been searching for work, including in Vilvoorde, a small town of 42,000 people from which more than 20 jihadists departed for Syria in 2014.

Roser Venura said police told them to immediately leave the Ventura Soler cava vineyard, located between the towns of Sadurni d'Anoia and Subirats. Authorities believe both attacks were carried out by the same terrorist cell.

Four Spaniards, two Portuguese, two Italians, an American and a Belgian were also killed, according to a statement.
