Barcelona terror suspect says his brother stole his identification

A suspect at the centre of the Barcelona terror attack is claiming his younger brother posed as him after stealing his identification.

At least 13 people have been killed after a van drove through crowds on Las Ramblas. The driver of the van escaped on foot.

Driss Oukabir, 28, handed himself in to police in Ripol after seeing his photo in the media. According to reports, he explained his identification as stolen and that's why it was found in the rented van used in the attack.

The suspect posted a status to Facebook after the attack, saying: "Death death death why are they afraid of death".

Oukabir claims it was his younger brother carried out the attack. Police are investigating whether his explanation is true.

Hours after the first attack, media reported a vehicle ran over six people in Cambrils, leaving one person seriously injured and another in critical condition. Five attackers were then shot dead by police.
