  • The total number of fatalities from the twin assaults in Catalonia has now risen to 16

Earlier, Spain's Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido stated that the terror cell behind Spain's deadly twin attacks cell was believed to have consisted of at least twelve persons.

Medical authorities said that 22 people wounded in the attacks are still being treated in hospitals.

A woman also was also killed in Cambrils in a stabbing spree by the five occupants of a auto that drove at pedestrians before crashing into a police vehicle.

In this pyrenean city, Hafida Oubakir, sister of one jihadist of 17 years in Cambrils, read -between sobs - a speech calling to "reject the islamist message" and "ideology slut who has neither rhyme nor reason", broadcast by the Catalan television. Five aggressors in the auto were shot dead by police at the scene. The van driver then stabbed another man to death in a carjacking to make his getaway.

The slogan of the march - "I'm not afraid" - became the people's response to the Barcelona tragedy and was also embraced by the Spanish and Catalan authorities.

According to reports in Spanish media, the cell had planned a much bigger attack, with possible targets including the Sagrada Família, Antoni Gaudí's much-loved, half-finished church in Barcelona.

King Felipe was booed when he joined a memorial march on Saturday.

The march was led by emergency workers, shopkeepers and residents of the city.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said Friday the investigation into the attacks will be coordinated from now on by the Interior Ministry's organized crime and terrorism intelligence center, CITCO, after representatives of intelligence agencies and police forces met Thursday with judicial authorities at the country's National Court, which handles terrorism cases.

King Felipe VI will also attend the march, becoming the first Spanish sovereign to take part in a demonstration since the monarchy was re-established in 1975 after the death of dictator Francisco Franco.
