Spanish Report: Terrorists Sought Out Nightclubs, Festivals

SPAIN (CelebrityAccess) The police force of Catalonia, Spain – Mossos d’Esquardra – published a report more than a week ago, that is getting reported only recently by the Western media, that music clubs and festivals in Barcelona and Benicassim are potential next terrorist targets.

Spanish news agency EFE reported last week that, according to the report, terrorists that attacked Spain last Aug. 17 may have been inspired by the attack on the Bataclan music venue in Paris and the mass shooting at the gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando, Fla. Last year, a man named Younes Abouyaaqoub drove a van into pedestrians in Barcelona, killing 13 and injuring at least 130. Nine hours later, five men believed to be part of the same terrorist network, drove into pedestrians in nearby Cambrils, killing one and injuring six.

The night before, an explosion occurred in Alcanar, killing two members of the terrorists. The home had more than 120 gas canisters inside, plus other materials. The Mossos d’Esquardra have now released a report based on cell phone records from that house, where it was believed the terrorists were planning the attacks.

The Catalonian police force said an attack on any of the places researched were targets. Web searches included nightclubs in Barcelona like Razzmataz, Pachá and Badgad, and gay clubs like Stiges. Four days before the attacks, terrorists showed interest in festivals in Stiges and Benicassim (Rototom Sunsplash), according to the report.

Wider searches included “All festivals 19.08.2017 in the Valencian Community” and “Carpas Benicassim 19.8.2917.”

“Barcelona concerts calendar,” “Festa major Sitges 2017,” and “Festa major Sitges les barranques” were other searches, according to police.
