ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Catalan police released pictures on Monday (August 21) of 22-year-old Younes Abouyaaqoub, whom they suspect of ramming a car into crowds in Barcelona last Thursday (August 17) before fleeing the scene on foot and later stabbing a man to death and taking his car to escape. Thirteen people died in the van rampage on Las Ramblas, while another woman was killed in a separate attack by suspected Islamist militants hours later in the seaside resort in Cambrils. Police now consider that the death toll from the attacks stands at 15, including the Spanish man stabbed in his car as he was parking. They believe Abouyaaqoub took the car, rammed into officials at a police checkpoint in the city and then abandoned the vehicle with the dead body in it. Abouyaaqoub is believed to have belonged to a cell of 12 and in the early hours of Monday (August 21) an overnight raid took place in Ripoll and material was seized from a flat where the suspects are thought to have held meetings.
