Barcelona crash: 'I saw a woman screaming for her kids'

A van has been involved in a "massive crash" in the city centre of Barcelona, with "several" injured.

Police said a white van mounted the pavement and struck several people.

Pictures from the scene show emergency services and civilians attending to at least two people on the ground.

The Ministry of the Interior said on Twitter: "There has just been a massive crash on the Ramblas in Barcelona by a person with a van. There are injured."

Emergency services in Catalonia say they have asked the Metro and train services in the area to close.

The National Police have told people to avoid Plaza Catalunya area after the smash in Las Ramblas.

    A second man has been arrested in Manlleu, 50 miles north of Barcelona, in connection with the attack, according to media reports

    20:58

    Police have released this image of a suspect following the terror attack.

    He has been named by police as Driss Oukabir

    "Before you embark on a Journey of Revenge, Dig Two Graves" Confucius (504 bc)
    “The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.”

    Driss Oukabir, a Moroccan-born man and legal resident of Spain, is accused of being one of the main suspects connected to the car ramming attack in Barcelona, Spain that left at least 13 people dead and 50 more injured on the streets of a popular tourist promenade.

    Graphic photos and videos from the scene of the August 17 attack showed bloodied victims lying on the sidewalk in a scene that has become all-too familiar over the past year in European cities. You can see some of them later in this post, although be aware they are very disturbing.

    A Facebook page that appeared to be the suspect’s gave his name as Driss Oukabir Soprano and said he lives in Ripoli and is from Marseilles, France; the page shared anti-Semitic posts, including a video with blatant Nazi imagery, a post about Muslim reaction to Christianity, and Moroccan music videos. The page also says he is in a relationship. Spanish and French reporters identified the page as that of Driss Oukabir, the Barcelona suspect, although police have not confirmed this. The page was deleted shortly after it started filling with invective from angry people who found it. El Pais confirmed through police sources that the suspect had lived in Ripoli and reported he is under arrest.

    El Pais, a Spanish language newspaper, reported that the suspect was identified by the Civil Guard in that country. The translated version of the article read, “The van used in the attack was rented by Driss Oukabir, in the town of Santa Perpetua de la Mogada, according to the identification made by the Civil Guard.” It’s not yet clear the degree to which police believe that Driss Oukabir was allegedly involved in the attack – whether he was the driver, for example.

    It was reported that there were two suspects at the scene, and that still appears to be true preliminarily, although reports in these situations are often fluid and conflicting in the beginning. News has now broken that a second suspect was shot by police.


    The page that was in the name of Driss Oukabir on Facebook contained a video that spoke of a global Jewish conspiracy to take over the world that contains overt Nazi imagery. The page also posted hip hop videos and posts on Moroccan politics. Catalan Minister of Foreign Affairs Raul Romeva told CNN that authorities were still investigating the motive for the terror attack. The suspect is 28-years-old, according to El Pais.

    The page also shared other religious materials, although many of the posts shared music videos. However, this video was also shared; in English, its caption reads, “A calling Muslim can not respond to a Christian.”

    Hunt for van driver after Barcelona rampage

    A manhunt continues for the driver, who escaped the scene on foot after ploughing into crowds on Las Ramblas.

    Police are hunting the driver of a van that drove into a crowd in Barcelona, killing at least 13 people and injuring more than 100.

    The white van mounted the pavement of Las Ramblas, the main tourist area in the city, and hit dozens of people on Thursday afternoon.

    Police have arrested two people over the attack - but they are still hunting for the driver of the vehicle who is said to have fled on foot.

    Senior police official Josep Lluis Trapero said, although two people are being held "that doesn't mean that either were the author of the attack".

    There is no evidence the person who left the van was armed, Catalonia's interior ministry said.

    Barcelona terror: Seven hurt in second attack in Spain

    Bystanders can be seen running for cover amid the sound of gunfire in footage of the shoot-out in a seaside resort.

    Five suspected terrorists have been killed in a shoot-out with Spanish police as they carried out a similar vehicle attack to the one in Barcelona.

    Special forces were deployed to the coastal town of Cambrils - just hours after a van ploughed into crowds in Barcelona's famous Las Ramblas boulevard in which 13 people were killed and at least 100 others injured.

    The Catalan government says the two attacks are linked.

    The suspects in Cambrils were carrying explosive belts and a bomb squad was carrying out several controlled explosions, police said.

    Two suspects are being questioned by Spanish police in connection with yesterday's massacre in the tourist district of Barcelona.

    A man named by police in the immediate aftermath of the atrocity, which left 13 dead and more than 100 injured, handed himself in at a police station more than 60 miles from the Catalan city.

    Officials have confirmed that a Spanish national and a Moroccan have been arrested in connection with the mass killing, after a van swerved across a busy pavement, mowing down innocents in its path.

    Neither of them was at the wheel of the van during the attack, prompting fears that the driver was still at large.

    In a separate incident a man was shot dead by police after driving through a roadblock, injuring two officers, one of who suffered a broken leg.

    But Spanish authorities now say he was not linked to the attack.

    Police circulated the image of Driss Oukabir, 28, (right) saying he had rented a van used in the attack - but he later accused his brother Moussa (left) of stealing his ID documents


     

    In the aftermath of the attack police circulated an image of Driss Oukabir, a 28-year-old Catalan resident of Moroccan origin, saying he had rented out a second van thought to be intended as a getaway vehicle - where his documents were found. A man was arrested at the scene. 

    But police sources said Oukabir later handed himself in at a police station in Ripoll, 65 miles north of Barcelona, claiming his brother had stolen his documents.

    His brother is named Moussa Oukabir, 18, who lives in Barcelona, El Pais reports.

    Disturbing comments posted on social network Kiwi by an account carrying Moussa Oukabir's name and photograph makes reference to killing all infidels.

    Spain's DOUBLE terror: Terror cell of 8 planned gas cannister attack - 5 jihadis SHOT DEAD

    FIVE suspected terrorists believed to be wearing explosive belts have been killed in a shootout with Spanish police in Cambrils, south west of Barcelona after carrying out a copycat attack.

    The suspects attempted to carry out a similar attack to the earlier horror in Barcelona by driving a van into pedestrians, injuring six people. One is seriously injured and another is in a critical condition.

    A police officer has also suffered minor injuries in the shoot-out with the terrorists, emergency services confirmed.

    The five suspects were in an Audi A3 car, which was driven deliberately into pedestrians on the seafront in Cambrils on Thursday evening.

    A spokeswoman said that officers shot dead five perpetrators during the copycat attack, linked to the earlier terror attack in the Spanish city of Barcelona. 

    Authorities investigating the attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils believe a terror cell of eight people may have been involved and had been planning to carry out further attacks using gas cannisters.

    This is the man police are searching for

    Spanish state news agency EFE says police are searching for Moussa Oukabir, who they believe may be the driver of the van which struck pedestrians in Barcelona.

    He is the younger brother of Driss Oukabir, whose ID was used to rent the van. Driss Oukabir denies any involvement and claims his younger brother stole his ID.

    Spain terror attacks: 9/11 pilot met al Qaeda plotter in Cambrils

    One of the September 11 pilots visited the Spanish coastal town with a fellow plotter while planning the US attack.

    The Spanish town of Cambrils has previous links to terrorism having hosted a meeting between a pilot in the 9/11 attacks and an al Qaeda plotter.

    Seven people were injured in the coastal town overnight in a second vehicle attack following the atrocity in Barcelona.

    It is the second time the town has been linked to terrorism after Mohammed Atta, who piloted the first hijacked airliner into the World Trade Center, visited Cambrils before the 2001 atrocity.

    He drove from Madrid to the seaside town after collecting fellow conspirator Ramzi bin al-Shibh, and they are thought to have spent a night at a hotel there.

    ‘Bigger attack’ was planned: 3 Moroccans, 1 Spaniard in custody over Catalonia terrorist acts

    Three Moroccans and one Spaniard have been detained in relation to the Catalonia attacks that killed 14 people and injured some 130, police said, adding that the suspects were preparing an even bigger assault.

    Authorities have yet to identify the driver of the van in the Barcelona attack, Catalan regional police official Josep Lluis Trapero said during a press conference.

    None of the four detainees arrested [following] the Cambrils and #Barcelona attacks had a history of terrorism-related offenses,” Catalan police tweeted.

    They were preparing one or several attacks in Barcelona and an explosion in Alcanar stopped this as they no longer had the material they needed to commit attacks of an even bigger scope,” said Trapero said, as cited by AFP.  

    Police said they are investigating if the terrorists had been being planning the attacks for some time.

    Barcelona attack: Appeals for missing seven-year-old boy separated from mother during Las Ramblas terror

    Julian Alessandro Cadman, who holds dual British and Australian citizenship, was out walking with his mother Jom when they became separated after a van ploughed into crowds in the busy street

    julian-pic-croppedjpg
    Julian’s family launched a campaign to track down the boy who has not been located since his mother Jom was hospitalised Facebook

    The family of a seven-year-old British boy who was separated from his mother after the Barcelona attack have made a plea to find the missing boy - as fears grow for his safety after the tragedy.

    Julian Alessandro Cadman was out walking with his mother Jom when terrorists rammed a van into the packed Las Ramblas street, leaving at least 13 dead and 100 injured amid the horror.

    Theresa May said the authorities in the UK are “urgently looking into reports” that the child, who holds dual British and Australian citizenship, has yet to be accounted for after the attack.

    His mother Jom is in hospital after being injured in the attack but is in a serious but stable condition, according to the family.

    Ms May spoke out after Julian's grandfather made an appeal on social media for any information about the boy's whereabouts.

    Barcelona survivor caught up in third terror attack this year

    Julian’s father Andrew Cadman, from Sydney, said he had spoken to his son only hours before he went missing. He is travelling to Barcelona to search for the boy.

    Now Julian’s wider family have launched a social media campaign in a bid to find him as the authorities fear the number of dead in the atrocity in the Spanish city may grow.

    His grandfather Tony Cadman, who lives in Sydney but is originally from Gillingham, Dorset, posted his appeal on Facebook.

    Europe's cities face threat of 'sleeper' extremists

    Security agencies are having to focus on the threat of radicalised individuals using knives and vehicles to carry out attacks.

    Europe's cities have had to get used to the fact that, of late, the terror threat they face has increased both in size and complexity.

    The atrocities in Barcelona and Cambrils are the latest examples of this.

    The continent's police and security agencies have long known that the demise of the so-called Islamic State would signal an increase in the tempo of attacks, and definitely not an end to the threat of Islamist extremists.

    Three attacks in the UK in as many months were the first indication of the nightmare scenario they feared; that the leaders of this rapidly disintegrating so-called caliphate would compel their footsoldiers to launch attacks across the West.

    After all, the model for this kind of scenario played out more than a decade ago, when the most feared terror group at that time, al Qaeda, felt the full wrath of coalition airstrikes and ground operations.

    Who is Behind the Barcelona and Cambrils Attacks? Can We Trust the Official Reports?

    Global Research, August 18, 2017

    “Three fatal incidents believed to be linked to terrorism occur over a 24-hour period and a 190-mile stretch of north-east Spain” 

    “Fourteen people have been confirmed killed in two attacks in Spain on Thursday. Thirteen died when a van was driven in to crowds on Las Ramblas in Barcelona, and one person was killed by a car in Cambrils, a coastal town 75 miles (120km) to the the south. The horrific events appear to have begun the night before, in another town 120 miles south of Barcelona.” (Guardian

    Update  

    (Friday, 21.15pm local time, 15.15 ET)

    According to police sources, the alleged suspect driver of the van Moussa Oukabir, 17 years old (18 in some news reports) in the Las Ramblas attack was shot dead by police on Friday.

    It is worth noting that two hours after the Barcelona terror attack, a suspect “was shot dead” after driving through a roadblock in Barcelona. According to police reports, he was killed by mistake: “He is now not believed to be linked to the attack.”

    Moussa’s brother Driss Oukabir had initially been identified as a suspect when his ID was found at the scene of the Barcelona attack. Following the press reports concerning his ID, Driss went voluntarily to the police station saying that his ID had been stolen and he was not in any way involved in the attacks.

    Was his brother Moussa (a suspect according to police reports) the perpetrator? Did a 17 year old have the required experience in driving a van in an allegedly carefully planned operation. (The minimum age in Spain to obtain a driver’s  licence for a car or a van is 18 years.)

    Barcelona attack: Imam's home raided as police hunt terror mastermind

    One theory is that a cell was targeting Barcelona's Sagrada Familia before a blast killed their leader in Alcanar on Wednesday.

    Police have raided the flat of an imam who they believe may have radicalised the Barcelona and Cambrils attackers.

    It is reported that Abdelbaki es Satty is the ringleader of the terror cell and is responsible for directing the terrorists to commit the attacks in Spain which killed 14 people.

    Es Satty was reportedly last seen on Tuesday and is said to be about 40 years old, but one line of inquiry being pursued by police is that he may have been killed in an explosion in Alcanar on Wednesday night.

    His flatmate told newspaper La Vanguardia that es Satty left his home on Tuesday because he was going to Morocco, and did not hear from him again.

    Inside the home of the Imam who 'masterminded' Barcelona massacre: Police search flat and mosque for DNA to confirm he died in accidental blast after he was 'vaporised when his bomb factory exploded'


    Police searched Abdelbaki Es Satty's flat in Ripoll, Spain, for samples of DNA and fingerprints to verify whether he was killed at the bomb factory where the terror cell prepared a planned bomb attack. Images from inside the home (four main images) show outdated appliances, white walls and bedrooms with mattresses on the floor. Es Satty, 45, began preaching in Ripoll around two years ago but stopped two months ago, sources at the town's mosque (inset) said. The president of the mosque where Es Satty preached, Ali Yassine, said he hadn't seen him since June, when he announced he was returning to Morocco for three months.

    Europe-wide alert for Barcelona van driver

    Have you seen this man? Police searching for suspect Younes Abouyaaquob warn the fugitive is "dangerous and could be armed".


    The hunt for the man suspected of driving the van in the Barcelona terror crash has been extended to other European countries - as police confirmed a 15th victim of the twin attacks in Spain.

    Pau Perez was found stabbed to death in a car which is believed to have been used by one of the attackers as they fled the scene.

    As details of the latest developments in the terror investigation were made public, a security alert was issued in the city centre over a suspicious package on a bus, near the main memorial site of the van attack.

    Sky's Adele Robinson, at the scene, described it as "a large-scale security incident" involving armed police as officers evacuated the area. However, it was later confirmed as a false alarm.

    ‘I prefer him in prison or dead:’ Mother of Barcelona attack suspect calls on him to surrender

    The mother of Younes Abouyaaqoub, the man suspected of mowing down pedestrians in a van attack in Barcelona’s Las Ramblas tourist hotspot, killing 14 people and injuring 120, has called on her son to surrender to police.

    "I would like him to return, to stop what he has been doing. I’m not responsible for all that. I want him to surrender to police. I prefer him to be in prison or even dead rather than killing other people," the woman told French broadcaster BFM TV on Monday.

    The 22-year-old Moroccan is being hunted by police, and may have fled north into France. Abouyaaqoub is the only person unaccounted for in the investigation into an extremist cell of 12 people identified by Spanish police, force spokesman Albert Oliva told a local radio station on Sunday.

    Catalan police have put up scores of roadblocks across the province in a manhunt for Abouyaaqoub, but the suspect has so far eluded law enforcement.

    Refusing to shake hands with women and quoting the Koran: How Europe's most wanted man descended into JIHAD before slaughtering 15 in Barcelona

    • Family of Younes Abouyaaqoub have revealed he became 'more conservative'
    • 22-year-old is now Europe's most wanted man and may be at large in France
    • He drove white van in Las Ramblas rampage in Barcelona, killing 13, police say
    • Now relatives say he refused to shake hands with his female cousins 
    • Death toll in Barcelona atrocity has now reached 15 five days after the attack 

    Fugitive Barcelona terrorist Younes Abouyaaqoub refused to shake hands with his female relatives as he became increasingly pious in the months before the Barcelona atrocity, it emerged today.

    The 22-year-old, who previously visited nightclubs and drank alcohol, bought a biography of the prophet Muhammad and adorned the walls of his Spanish home with verses from the Koran.

    Relatives and friends have told how he transformed from a relaxed teenager - who worked hard selling shoes before dawn and bought a new BMW with his first pay packet - into a religious fanatic in just a year.

    Today, as police issued a 'wanted' posted describing Abouyaaquob as 'dangerous' and the driver of the Las Ramblas van, relatives in Morocco revealed details of his final visit.

    Terror suspect: 'Bigger attack was planned'

    Suspects clockwise Mohammed Aalla Salah el Karib Driss Oukabir and Mohamed Houli Chemlal

    The surviving suspects held in connection with the Barcelona and Cambrils attacks have appeared at the High Court in Madrid.

    One of the surviving suspects of last week's terror attacks in Spain has told a court that a bigger atrocity was planned.

    According to Spanish newspaper El Mundo, Mohamed Houli Chemlal revealed the cell was planning to strike some of Barcelona's best-known monuments - including the Sagrada Familia church.

    The 21-year-old is among four men who were taken to Madrid's National Court to testify for the first time about the plot.

    Chemlal was arrested after being injured in an explosion at a house in Alcanar, southwest of Barcelona, a day before a van drove into pedestrians on the crowded Las Ramblas boulevard.

    ‘We’re gonna slit your throat’: Madrid jail inmates threaten Barcelona terror suspect

    The 28-year-old suspect Driss Oukabir, who is being held in a Madrid jail in connection with the recent Catalonia attacks which killed 15 people, has been getting death threats from inmates, local media report.

    “We are going to slit your throat when you go out to the patio,” prisoners of the Soto del Real jail in Madrid shouted through their windows when they heard of Oukabir’s arrival, security sources told El Pais.

    “F**king terrorist!” others shouted.

    Oukabir, who handed himself in to police in his home town of Ripoll, told a judge on Tuesday that he had rented the van that was used in the car ramming attack in Barcelona, which killed 13 people and injured some 130 on the popular Las Ramblas street on August 17. Oukabir maintains he thought the car would be used for furniture removal.

    However, Judge Fernando Andreu ruled that there were “rational and well-founded indications” of Oukabir’s involvement in the attack, and he is being held without bail on charges of murder, membership of a terror organization and the possession of explosives.

    Oukabir has been placed in solitary confinement for his own protection.
