Main Suspect Younes Abouyaaqoub 'Shot Down' By Police — Barcelona Attack

Local police have named the man as Younes Abouyaaqoub, the 22-year-old Moroccan who allegedly ploughed his van into crowds in Barcelona.

Spanish Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoida said Saturday that police moved quickly to break up a terrorist cell accused of carrying out the attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils, with at least 12 people arrested or killed.

A missing imam and a house that exploded days ago has become the focus of the investigation into an extremist cell responsible for two deadly attacks in Barcelona and a nearby resort.

The police had initially confirmed that a man wearing what appeared to be an explosive vest had been gunned down, and confirmed in a tweet that the man was in fact the suspect.

Images published by Spanish daily El Pais claim to show CCTV stills of Abouyaaqoub walking away from the scene of the carnage.

According to Catalan police, Abouyaaqoub is dangerous and possibly armed. His mother, Hannou Ghanimi had appealed for him to surrender, saying she would rather see him in jail than dead.

Investigators are trying to determine if some of the suspects sought were killed Wednesday night in an explosion that leveled a home in Alcanar.

Thirteen people were killed in the attack in Barcelona on Thursday, including seven-year-old British boy Julian Cadman. Police say it's possible two people died in the explosion, but those deaths are considered separate from the totals during the two attacks.

As mourners honored the dead, the manhunt for the suspected driver edged toward its third day, with police announcing a major new development. After he was shot, police deployed a robot to remove the device, which was revealed to be a fake.

"The capacity of this cell to act has been neutralized thanks to the work of the police", Forn said in an earlier statement.

The police had fired at the car as it forced its way through a checkpoint shortly after the Barcelona carnage, and later found Perez in the vehicle.
