Las Ramblas Van Driver Killed

Younes-Abouyaaqoub

The Spanish police have now confirmed that the person they shot this evening in Barcelona is , the person suspected of being the van driver who drove into people in Las Ramblas on Thursday 17th August. The police were tipped off by a petrol station employee who recognised Abouyaaqoub as to his location and he was shot by the police who found him hiding in a nearby vineyard. This does not signal the end of the investigation, it is still ongoing as the Spanish police look for evidence to see if anyone else was involved in this Islamic State inspired terrorist cell. I will be discussing this tonight just after 23.10 hours (BST) on Al Jazeera.
