The Wall Street Journal: Barcelona investigation centers on former imam; manhunt for suspected driver

BARCELONA — A former imam may have radicalized a group of mainly Moroccan-born men who allegedly carried out Spain’s most deadly Islamist terrorist attack in a decade, authorities said Sunday.

Police also said they are closing in on the one suspect still at large among a group of 11 other terrorists, who they believe had plans for an even bigger attack.

The cell aborted a plan to set off a series of explosions, investigators believe, when the material accidentally detonated last week and instead used vehicles to plow through pedestrians in back-to-back assaults, killing 13 in Barcelona and one in the seaside town of Cambrils.
