Spain: Terror attacks Parts 2 and 3: 6 Terrorists shot dead.

(Cambrils) After the terrorist attack yesterday in Barcelona where 13 people were killed when a Van was driven through a busy shopping centre.  Spanish police were on heighten alert and last night that pro-activeness paid dividends when 3 hours after that initial attack a vehicle was driven into a Police checkpoint  on the edge of Barcelona in  Sant Just Desvern, Police fired into the vehicle killing the Driver (Who has yet to be identified) 

Then at 1am Friday morning  around 70 miles away in the town of Cambrils another vehicle was driven into a Police checkpoint injuring 7 people. Unfortunately for the attackers, their Audi A3 overturned and when the 5 men inside dressed in fake suicide vests and armed with knives staggered out, they were all shot dead. 

It is now believed that part of this Islamist cell is thought to have blown itself up in the early hours of Thursday morning while trying to assemble a bomb in a house in another coastal town, Alcanar Platja, some 200km south along the coast from Barcelona. One person was killed and another wounded in an initial explosion that destroyed the house. Police and firefighters who came to the scene were wounded by a second blast.
