Police detain third suspect in Catalonia terror attacks

The police have detained the third person, suspected of involvement in the terrorist attacks in Catalonia, the law enforcement authorities said on Friday.

The operation was organized in Ripoll, the authorities said.

On August 17, around 17:00 local time (18:00 Moscow time) a van drove into pedestrians in La Rambla Street in downtown Barcelona. Police classified the incident as a terrorist attack. Later on, the Islamic State organization (outlawed in Russia) claimed responsibility for it.

At night Catalan police killed four terrorists and injured another one in Cambrils, who died later on. The terrorists attempted a terrorist attack similar to the one in Barcelona on August 17, where 13 died and more than 100 were injured.
