ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. CCTV footage obtained by Spanish newspaper El Pais were released on Monday (August 21), allegedly showing the suspect in the Barcelona attack. According to Spanish media, the three still pictures show the suspect entering and leaving the popular Boqueria Market in Las Ramblas, where the driver of a van rammed into crowds last Thursday (August 17) killing 13 people. Spanish police have been searching for Younes Abouyaaqoub, a 22 year old Moroccan born man, that investigators believe is the driver of the van in the attack, a Catalan government official said on Monday. Asked on Catalan radio whether Abouyaaqoub was the driver, Joaquim Forn, who runs home affairs in Catalonia's regional government said: "This is one of the lines of enquiry. It's the main one. Everything points to that. Today we will explain the evidence and (explain) why we have come to that conclusion." Police carried out more raids overnight at homes in the town of Ripoll near the French border, where many of the suspects lived, Forn said. Others thought to be part of a 12-strong cell have been arrested, shot by police or killed in an explosion at a house in Catalonia a day before Thursday's van attack.
