Spanish judge to order four suspects to jail-sources

MADRID, Aug 22 (Reuters) - A Spanish High Court judge will order four suspects in the Barcelona van attack to jail after one defendant told the court that the group had bought in Spain and abroad materials to make explosives, sources close to the investigation said.

Only one of the four suspects who appeared before a Spanish judge on Tuesday, Mohamed Houli Chemlal, confessed to his participation in the Islamist cell behind the attack while the other three arrested men said they were innocent, the sources said.
