Manhunt underway amid fears of more strikes — Barcelona attack


Meanwhile, turbulence surrounding President Donald trump's leadership, economic policies and his recent statements on the white supremacist rally in Virginia, continue to weigh on sentiment. "The Philippines condemns in the strongest terms this disturbing act of terror perpetrated by extremists against innocent men, women, and children in Barcelona", he said. The massive manhunt was launched amid fears that they could be preparing further attacks at popular tourist areas.

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

Four men were reportedly being hunted by authorities in connection with the deadly vehicle assaults in Barcelona and Cambrils.

Trapero said that after this, the suspects - who formed part of a cell - allegedly went on to commit "more rudimentary" attacks - ploughing into pedestrians in Barcelona and Cambrils. Thus, the only way forward is for the international community to cooperate yet more closely to eliminate extremism. Spanish media said two of them may have been killed in Alcanar, where a house was razed by an explosion shortly before midnight on Wednesday, and the third is Abouyaaqoub.

Attackers are believed to have planned bombing but changed their plans. My husband saw the first few casualties laying on the road at the end of Las Ramblas and thought it was a car accident.

A Moroccan passport is also seen left on a table inside the flat.

Spanish hospital officials updated the status of the injured victims of the Barcelona and Cambrils terror attacks Saturday, saying 12 people from the Barcelona attack remain in critical condition while one person remains in serious condition from the Cambrils attack. Police said they had extended their search for Abouyaaqoub across Catalonia and beyond.

A 74-year-old Portuguese woman, a 40-year-old woman with dual Argentine and Spanish citizenship, and a Belgian were also killed, their governments said.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull asked people to pray for the boy, adding that the mother is in a hospital.

"He was gentle, always smiling".

"We should all, in our quiet moments as parents, should say a quiet prayer for his family as they rush to seek to find him". The victims and the injured had all been located, they said. "At least 20 unexplored canisters were still on the site", at the house, according to photographs of the scene, he says. In Barcelona, a van sped down Las Ramblas avenue on Thursday, killing 13. A few hours later, five extremists began mowing down people along the boardwalk in the seaside resort of Cambrils.

"The executor of the stabbing operation in the city of Surgut in Russia is a soldier of the Islamic State", Amaq said. The other thing I noticed was that there were so many armed police around yesterday.
