Twin attacks in Spain: Death toll reaches 16

Barcelona [Spain]: The death toll in the last week’s terrorist attacks in Spain has reached 16 after a woman died in the intensive care unit of Barcelona’s Hospital del Mar on Sunday.

More than 100 people were injured after a vehicle ploughed into the pedestrians at Barcelona’s famed Las Ramblas boulevard tourist area.

One of the suspects involved in the Barcelona attacks was found dead in a car three kilometers from where police officers tried to stop him by firing at the vehicle he was in.

The ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Earlier, Spain’s Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido stated that the terror cell behind Spain`s deadly twin attacks cell was believed to have consisted of at least twelve persons.

The Spanish High Court had earlier this week, ordered two of the four suspects detained in connection with the attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils to be sent to jail.

A third suspect, Salh El Karib, had to remain in police custody for 72 more hours for the pending further investigation.

The fourth suspect, Mohamed Aalla, was released on certain conditions. (ANI)
