Police kills suspected driver in Barcelona attack

Spanish authorities on Monday shot and killed Younes Abouyaaqoub, the suspected driver of the van that rammed into crowds last week in Barcelona, according to a tweet from the Catalan police.

Abouyaaqoub was killed during an operation in Subirats, west of Barcelona. Police earlier said they had shot a man wearing an explosive belt but did not immediately identify him as Abouyaaqoub.

A robot was sent to remove the explosives belt from the body before officers were cleared to approach it and make a positive identification, authorities said.

Abouyaaqoub, a 22-year-old Moroccan national, is alleged to have been the sole driver of the van used to kill 13 people Thursday on Las Ramblas. More than 100 others were injured.
