Spanish police are looking for a vehicle rented by suspects of the Barcelona attack after reports it may have crossed into France.

A French security official said Spanish police gave them the information about the car which was rented on Thursday in Spain.

French police are on the lookout nationwide for the car which is a Kangoo utlity vehicle and were also handed information by the Spanish authorities about four suspects believed to be on the run.

France's interior minister said his country has reinforced police surveillance of what is normally an open border between the two countries.


Liverpool reject third Barcelona bid for Coutinho

Liverpool have rejected a third bid from Barcelona for Brazilian attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho, thought to be in the the region of £113million.

The offer, reportedly £113million rising to £118m with add-ons, was instantly turned down by the Reds, who are adamant the player is not for sale.

It is understood privately Liverpool consider the sums being offered irrelevant as they have no intention of allowing the Brazil international to leave this summer.

Owners Fenway Sports Group said as much last week when they issued a statement explicitly stressing the 25-year-old would be at the club beyond the close of the transfer window.

That prompted Coutinho to hand in a transfer request last Friday, but the club remains resolute.

Regardless of that situation, a back injury means Coutinho will not be facing Crystal Palace this weekend.

Four of the five suspected terrorists in the Cambrils attack were shot dead by the same police officer.

The group were all killed after ramming their car into a group of people in the Spanish coastal town on Friday morning.

Several pedestrians were injured, one who later died in hospital, just hours after a similar incident in Barcelona where 13 people were left dead.

Catalonian authorities tweeted that the same police officer had shot dead four of the five Cambrils attackers.

Footage of the assailants lying dead on the ground showed they had been wearing fake suicide belts.
