Moussa Oukabir, 18, was shot dead by police in Cambrils, Spain on Thursday following a second terror attempt. Oukabir is suspected of driving a van through a crowd of people in Las Ramblas earlier that day, killing 13 people and injuring more than 100 others.
Oukabir is a Spanish citizen from the northern Catalan city of Girona. He is the younger brother of Driss Oukabir who was arrested earlier Thursday in Barcelona. He allegedly used his older brother’s documents to rent the van.
Police shot and killed Moussa, along with five other men after they drove a car into a crowd of people in Cambrils, killing one woman and injuring six others.
The vehicle overturned and when the six men emerged from the car, they were fired upon by police. One was said to be brandishing a knife. They appeared to be wearing explosive belts, but upon closer inspection, the explosives were revealed to be fakes.
Said Aallaa, 18, and Mohamed Hychami, 24, are among the dead after Thursday’s police terror raid in Cambrils.
