Terror cell behind Spain attack 'busted'

Barcelona attack

Spanish police expanded a manhunt yesterday for a Moroccan national believed to be one of the perpetrators of twin car attacks that killed 14 and wounded around 100, The Straits Times reported.

With the country in shock, Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido said yesterday that the cell behind the carnage claimed by the ISIS group had been "dismantled".

Police believe the cell, consisting of at least 12 young men, could have been plotting a car bomb attack but an explosion went off prematurely, killing two of the members.
