MADRID, August 21. /TASS/. Catalan police have confirmed that perpetrator of the Barcelona attack Younes Abouyaaqoub has been shot dead, law enforcement authorities reported on Monday.
"We confirm that the man shot down in Subirats is Younes Abouyaaqoub, an executor of the terror attack in Barcelona," police reported.
Law enforcement authorities earlier reported that the tracked down terrorist was supposedly wearing a suicide belt. According to local mass media, it turned out to be a fake one.
