According to NBC, Driss Oukabir Soprano has been identified in connection to rental of van used in deadly Barcelona attack, U.S. law enforcement says.
El Pais, reported that the suspect was identified by the Civil Guard in that country. The translated version of the article read, “The van used in the attack was rented by Driss Oukabir, in the town of Santa Perpetua de la Mogada, according to the identification made by the Civil Guard.” It’s not yet clear the degree to which police believe that Driss Oukabir was allegedly involved in the attack – whether he was the driver, for example.
However, a report in La VanGuardia says that Driss Oukabir, after seeking his photos and name in the news media, claims it’s a case of stolen identity. If true, that makes the actual identity of the Barcelona terrorist unclear. El Nacional, a local Spanish publication, also reported that Oukabir had come into a local police precinct to say his identity was taken and he’s not the terrorist.
As The Telegraph adds, one of the vans used to carry out the murderous rampage at the heart of the city was rented by Driss Oukabir, said to have been a convicted criminal.
