Spain Attacks Could Have Been Deadlier Due To Failed Explosives

The Islamic State terror group has claimed responsibility for the attack, the deadliest on Spanish soil since more than 190 people died in the Madrid train bombs in 2004.

Fourteen people were killed and 130 injured in the two attacks. Security forces have arrested four suspects, and they are trying to determine whether the driver of the Barcelona van was among them.

The authorities say they foiled what would have been a larger attack.

Authorities believe the two attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils are directly linked to Wednesday night's explosion in Alcanar where police discovered at least 20 gas containers. Most of the other suspects were Moroccans. Five other people were injured, one of whom is a police officer.

At least one American was killed in the attacks, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said.

Officials in Spain say citizens from 24 countries were among those killed and injured in Barcelona.

The five men attempted to drive into tourists on the Cambrils seafront, police said. "And our second priority is the police investigation, to find the people responsible of this attack and anyone who has helped them directly or indirectly". In total, the twin attacks left more than 100 injured.

- Police said the person killed was a Spanish national and was not on police radar.

For the time being, Moussa Oubakir is the main suspect, now sought as the driver of the van that rammed into the crowd in Las Ramblas.

People weren't sure whether gunshots heard were coming inside the building, and were terrified that there might be a shooter in the hotel, Gray said.
