Claimed by the organization islamic State (IS), the terrorist attacks in Catalonia were perpetrated by six Moroccans between the ages of 17 to 24 years who grew up together in the small Catalan town of Ripoll.

Hours later, a auto sped into Cambrils some 120 kilometers (75 miles) south, hitting people before crashing into a police vehicle.

Two other members of the 12-member cell were killed in an explosion before the van attack at a house apparently being used as a bomb factory in Alcanar, further down the coast from Cambrils. Another man was stabbed to death in a carjacking as the van driver made his getaway.
