Third person arrested over Barcelona attack

Catalan police said on Friday they have arrested a third person in connection to yesterday's deadly terror attack in Barcelona. The suspect was detained in the town of Ripoll, around 100 km north of Barcelona. 

Earlier, police arrested two men, one Spanish and one Moroccan, on suspicion they were involved in the van attack. Meanwhile, police killed five men in the coastal town of Cambrils, south of Barcelona, after they carried out a separate attack which injured seven including one law enforcement officer. The authorities suspect the incidents are connected.

On Thursday, a van drove into the crowd in Barcelona's Las Ramblas district, killing 13 and injuring over 100 people, many of which were tourists. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack and the authorities are still searching for the driver.
