[Ed. – May he rot in hell!]
The Las Ramblas terrorist who killed 13 people when he deliberately rammed a van into pedestrians in Barcelona has been shot dead at a vineyard, 28 miles west of the city, in a dramatic showdown with police.
Younes Abouyaaqoub, a 22-year-old Moroccan national, became Europe’s most wanted man after he ploughed a van into pedestrians on Thursday.
He escaped the scene on foot before hi-jacking a car, stabbing its driver to death and ramming into a police blockade near Sant Just Desvern, outside Barcelona.
He spent four days in hiding before today being spotted by a Catalan vineyard owner in the town of Subirats.
The daughter of the vineyard owner said her father alerted police after they saw a car crossing their property at high speed even though the vineyard was closed off.
Roser Venura says police told them to immediately leave the Ventura Soler cava vineyard, located between the towns of Sadurni d’Anoia and Subirats. She says “we heard a helicopter flying around and many police cars coming toward the gas station” near the property.
