Barcelona Airport attack: Car rams through terminal doors in jihad attack

A certain aspect of ‘normal’ life resumes. But it’s not what we want to hear.

Not letting a crisis stand in the way of jihad – Mohammed would be so proud.

Barcelona Airport attack: Car drives through terminal doors in botched ‘Islamist plot’

TWO men have been arrested after crashing a car into the interior of Barcelona’s El Prat Airport yelling “Islamic-type” slogans. Police have not ruled out terrorism as the motive.

By Paul Withers, Express, March 20, 2020

The city’s police force confirmed two men tried to storm the Terminal 1 building at 5am local time on Friday. The men got as far as the food court in the building and were reportedly shouting Islamist slogans before they were quickly arrested. The Spanish bomb squad were also quickly on the scene to investigate the car for any explosives, but no devices were found.

No weapons or ammunition were discovered in the vehicle either.

There were no injuries reported.

The airport also remains open and is operating as normal.

Interior Minister Miquel Buch said in a press conference: “At the moment, no hypothesis can be ruled out.”

Chief Commissioner Eduard Sallent confirmed that one of the detainees made an “Islamist” proclamation.

He said: “We have an open investigation.

“We do not rule out any assumptions regarding this morning’s incident at El Prat Airport.

“When they were detained, they made an Islamist-type proclamation and we do not know yet what their intention was.”

But Mr Buch and Mr Sallent said neither of the men were found to have any past convictions or links to well-known terrorist groups.

The arrested men left the car when they had driven it through the airport’s doors and made their way to a restricted area where they were stopped and detained.

The airport is usually heaving with people in the weeks leading up to the summer holiday season.
