>> The cell behind the vehicle attacks in Barcelona and the seaside town of Cambrils has been dismantled, Spain's government says but the manhunt continues. 13 people were killed on Barcelona's La Ramblas when a van ploughed into crowds on Thursday. Another woman died in Cambrils early on Friday in another attack involving a car.
Spanish investigators are focusing on a cell of at least 12 suspects that they believe were behind the deadliest attacks to hit Spain in more than a decade. Five of that number were shot dead in Cambrils. Police said they were armed with axes and knives and wearing fake explosive belts.
Four have been arrested, three Moroccans, and a citizen of Spain's North African enclave, Melilla. None of the nine people accounted for was the driver of the van. Police have said they are searching for one man, Moroccan-born, 22-year-old, Younes Abouyaqoub. Spanish media has said that he may have been the driver of the van, though this has not been confirmed by the authorities.
Two other people thought to be involved in the attack are not being sought. It's thought that they may have died in a house in Al Canal which was raised by an explosion just before midnight on Wednesday. Police believe this house was being used by the cell to plan one or several large-scale attacks, possibly involving a number of butane gas canisters stored there.
The apparently accidental explosion on Wednesday, spurring the attackers into carrying out more rudimentary attacks, police believe. Those attacks have left 50 people still in hospital, 13 in a critical condition.
