2 suspects in the Barcelona attack are being held without bail


Updated August 22, 2017 04:48 PM EDT

A judge has ordered authorities to hold two of the four suspects in last week's attacks in Spain to be held without bail.

National Court Judge Fernando Andreu issued the orders after the four suspects answered questions about the attack that killed 15 people. He found that there was enough evidence to hold Mohamed Houli Chemlal, 21, and Driss Oukabir, 28, on preliminary charges of causing homicides and injuries of terrorist nature and of belonging to a terrorism organization. Houli Chemlal was also held for dealing with explosives.

One of the suspects, Sahl El Karib, will be detained for at least another 72 hours for continued police questioning.

The fourth suspect, Mohamed Aalla, was released because the judge ruled that there wasn't enough evidence to detain him.

Barcelona police shot and killed the driver of a white Ford Focus that rammed into officers manning a traffic blockade, reports say.

This attack was the second vehicular incident in the city in just a day. The Barcelona police have not indicated whether or not the incident was related to the van attack that killed at least 13 people and injured at least 50 more.
