Catalonia terror attacks: Third suspect arrested, police confirm on Twitter

18 Août 2017

A second van believed to have possibly been rented by the same man who perpetrated the attack has been found by police in the nearby town of Vic.

The van driver in the Barcelona incident is still at large and is thought to have been the sole attacker. The driver stepped out of the van and fled the scene.

Ali Shirzainia, who was passing by in a cycle told CNN he saw the vehicle drive past him.

"As we've seen over the last couple of years in Europe, these kinds of atrocities affect tourism and will hit airline earnings", said ETX Capital's Neil Wilson.

A similar attack was carried in another Spanish city, but that time - the suspects were shot dead.

Police have not identified the men, only saying that one of them was a Spanish national from Melilla, a Spanish-run Mediterranean seafront enclave in North Africa, who was arrested in Alcanar, and the other was Moroccan.

Many more were left injured by the attack which has been claimed by Islamic State.
