The car's five occupants were shot dead by police. Police later shot dead five attackers in the town. "We practically all know each other". "Sophie and I offer our condolences to the families and friends in mourning, and hope for a speedy recovery for the injured Canadians".

Police have identified 12 members of the cell, but three remained unaccounted for Sunday.

Four people have been arrested so far in connection with the attacks: three Moroccans and a citizen of Spain's North African enclave of Melilla.

Rented houses, several vehicles, explosives, automatic weapons - this stuff costs money.

Last week the Barcelona attackers used two rental vans - one to run over pedestrians and another as a suspected getaway vehicle - to kill 14 people and leave almost 130 wounded. "I don't want to lose my two sons", he told AFP.

According to local media, she was on holiday with her husband and sister, who were both injured in the attack.

A police source in France told Reuters on Friday that police there had been looking for the driver of a white Renault Kangoo van that may be connected to the attacks.

Spanish authorities announced Saturday that the suspected driver of the van that rammed into a crowd of pedestrians in Barcelona Thursday - killing at least 13 people - remains on the loose. His brother Driss, 28, was arrested after his identity documents were found to have been used to rent the van used to carry out the attack on Las Ramblas, Barcelona. They were aged between 21 and 34, and none had a history of terrorism-related activities.

"They lived like the young people of their age, dressed like them", the father said.

"It will never be the same". "Everybody knew it. It was an open secret".

Frozen stars Idina Menzel and Josh Gad also tweeted love after hearing the news. "I don't trust anybody now".

Last Thursday, 30 years later, the city centre was hit by terror again.

Hammou Minaj, secretary of the mosque who knew the attackers as well, described Es Satty as an easygoing preacher.

This time Catalonia was attacked, less than two months before its unrecognised referendum on independence. "It just really brings home the vagaries of life".

Vilvoorde is known for Islamic State recruiting and jihadi activity.

But after these were destroyed in the blast, the group were forced to improvise using rudimentary tactics employed in dozens of other attacks around Europe.

She thanked her colleagues, the first responders who put their lives at risk to help the victims and those who assisted her mother, Valerie, by giving her urgent medical attention.

Spanish authorities are also investigating the scene of an explosion late Wednesday that killed one person in the city of Alcanar, some 200 kilometers (124 miles) southwest of Barcelona.

Engineers are tackling that challenge with new synthetic materials that can withstand major impact without needing a deep anchor, according to Margaret Gilmore, expert on intelligence at Britain's Royal United Services Institute.

Bruno Gulotta, 35, died on the street in front of his son Alessandro and wife Martina, Italian media reported.

He was found to have left when Catalan regional police searched his flat in the wake of the attacks.

Brothers radicalizing together are a common theme among extremists.

Julian Cadman, 7, with dual British-Australian nationality was killed in the Barcelona attack, police confirmed Sunday.

Scraps of paper covered in scribbled notes and phone numbers were strewn around the cramped flat, which was turned upside down during the police search.

"Those people that heard him talk about jihad and didn't say anything, are they happy now? Why didn't they stop him?"

"They maintained the desire to do harm, but not as expected", Josep Lluís Trapero, the commander of Los Mossos said.

Soccer player Christiano Ronaldo, who plays for Spanish team Real Madrid, also shared a message for the victims.
