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.
