Spain:'Bigger' attacks were prepared, Police issue pictures of wanted Muslims.

(Madrid) After the incidents this past 24 hours around Barcelona, it appears that despite the huge death toll of 13 and over 100 injured, the Spanish really dodged a bullet (and a number of bombs) as police investigations reveal that the Islamic plot to murder death kill could have been a lot worse if their initial plans hadn't gone tits up early.

It transpires that a house that exploded on Wednesday just down the coast from Barcelona was actually a bomb factory full of explosives which put paid to the plan of blowing people up. This is also believed to have precipitated the gang to put forward their planned day of rage from Friday (Islamic holy day) to the day before due to the fear of being found out.

Spanish police have now released pictures of 4 Islamic males whom they wish to track down.
