Local reports said he had been planning to film the machine gun attack and post it on social media networks run by ISIS, which is better known in Spain as Daesh.

He is also said to have been seeking information on the Dark Web about the components needed to make TATP, a peroxide-based explosive known as Mother of Satan found in the ruins of a bomb factory used by the terrorists behind the murderous attacks in Barcelona’s Las Ramblas and nearby Cambrils in August 2018.

Spanish Interior Ministry sources also said the suspect, named locally as Fath Allah Benhachem Grarrass, had regularly viewed videos of Islamic extremist attacks in Europe, including a stabbing on a train he watched 18 times to allegedly ‘improve his technique.’
