Barcelona attack: Key suspect Moussa Oukabir confirmed dead

President sends condolences to King of Spain

On Thursday night, the 14th victim, a woman, was reportedly stabbed and later died at the hospital on Friday, when five people jumped out of a vehicle and began attacking people at random on the seaside promenade in Cambrils, a town south of Barcelona.

The Islamic State struck again on August 17, when a van ran over people in downtown Barcelona, killing at least 13 and leaving over a hundred injured.

The father of a Vancouver police officer has been confirmed as the Canadian victim killed Thursday when a van plowed into crowds of tourists on a popular street in Barcelona, .

At least 13 people have been killed and 120 people have been injured after two terror attacks in Spain's Catalonia region this week.

- Just after 11 p.m., the fire brigade was alerted to an explosion in a house in Alcanar, a city about 100 miles southwest of Barcelona.

Barcelona terrorism suspects Moussa Oukabir (far left) Said Aallaa (center left), Mohamed Hychami (center right) were killed by Spanish police in a second attack.

"It was clearly a terror attack meant to kill as many people as possible", Josep Lluis Trapero, a senior police official, told reporters late Thursday.

According to a White House statement released on Friday, Trump made the pledge in a phone call with Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.




But Lea warned that terror threats were consistent in most big Western European cities, saying that the next serious attack "could pop up easily in Birmingham, Berlin or Barcelona".

Abella said the Philippine government has been in touch with authorities and leaders of the Filipino community in Spain to ensure that Filipinos there are safe. Earlier, Catalonia's regional president, Carles Puigdemont, said there was at least one "terrorist still out there".

The three remaining suspects have been identified but have not been detained, he added.

Le Drian said in a statement that he will be in Barcelona Friday "to visit the French victims of this cowardly act and affirm France's support to the Spanish people and authorities". Trapero told local media that one officer alone shot dead four of these suspects.

ISIS has no evidence that it was behind what happened in Las Ramblas, but claimed it was behind the attack.

"Kill all infidels and only allow Muslims to continue the religion", Moussa reportedly answered, going on to say the only country he would never live in is "the Vatican".

"It's not just this one (incident) because there have been other ones, so we have to condemn that and regret all these things that are happening now".
