- Story Text: Barcelona residents continued on Tuesday (August 22) to pay tribute to the victims of the van attack that killed 13 people in central Barcelona as newspapers led with news that 22-year-old Younes Abouyaaqoub, who they had identified as the driver of the van, had been gunned down by police on Monday (August 21) afternoon.
Despite the questions that remain and the shock amongst local residents, many remain resolute that life must go on.
"It has really hit me but it's in the past and we must bury the past and carry on with life, but there must be more prevention, the government must focus more on prevention because it hasn't at all," Antonio Lopez said.
On Thursday (August 17), a van careered along the packed Las Ramblas boulevard leaving a trail of 13 dead and 120 injured from 34 countries. After the attack, Abouyaaqoub escaped on foot, stabbing to death a man who was parking his car and fleeing in the vehicle.
