  • Barcelona

Spanish Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido said on Saturday authorities believed the militant group behind the Barcelona attack had been dismantled. They are currently being taken to the high court in Madrid, which has jurisdiction over terrorism matters.

"We confirm that the man shot dead in #subirats is Younes Abouyaaqoub, author of the terrorist attack in #barcelona", police tweeted on Monday.

Hours after the Barcelona attack, one person died and several others were injured when five suspects, armed with knives and fake suicide vests, tried to run people down in an Audi A3 in Cambrils, a coastal resort town about 140 kilometers from Barcelona.

IS claimed responsibility for the attacks, believed to be its first in Spain.

The police had fired at the car as it forced its way through a checkpoint shortly after the Barcelona carnage, and later found Pérez in the vehicle. They said a bomb squad was using a robot to approach the man's body.

The identities of three more victims were confirmed on Sunday, including Julian Cadman, a seven-year-old boy with joint British and Australian nationality, who was separated from his mother on the Ramblas when the Barcelona attack took place.

TATP was used in the November 2015 Paris attacks, the March 2016 Brussels bombings and the May bombing in Manchester, England.

Police raided more homes there on Monday morning, Forn said.

The investigation is also focusing on a missing imam who police believe could have died in that house explosion.

He said no new attacks were imminent, the country's terrorist threat alert will be maintained at level four, and security at popular events and tourist sites around the country will be reinforced.

The other suspects were killed by police or in a blast a day before the attack.

Local media have identified him as 22-year-old Moroccan-born Younes Abouyaaqoub.

Since last week's twin attacks, Ripoll - which has a population of 11,000, five percent of whom are Moroccan - is under shock. He said diplomats from the U.S. consulate in Barcelona are working with local authorities to identify victims and provide assistance to other Americans in need. Investigators now suspect that Es Satty was one of the deceased in the accidental bomb factory explosion.

After ploughing into people at great speed in Barcelona, he got out of the van, went through the city's most famous food market La Boqueria and walked six kilometres for an hour and a half until he got to the university district.

The identity has still not been confirmed of the van driver who fled after ploughing into pedestrians on Barcelona's Ramblas boulevard on Thursday afternoon, killing 13 and injuring more than 100.

Several hours later, a similar attack in the seaside town of Cambrils left one woman dead.

Catalan police released these images of the suspect.
