Fourth suspect in Spain attacks granted conditional release - court

<p>A fourth suspect in last week’s twin attacks in Spain has been granted conditional release by a Spanish judge.</p> <p>Salh El Karib ran an internet cafe in the northeastern Spanish town of Ripoll where most of the alleged attackers lived.</p> <p>El Karib will have to show up at a local court every week and is banned from leaving Spain, the court said in a statement.</p> <p>The 34-year-old Moroccan is the second of four suspects to have been granted conditional release.</p> <p>Another man arrested over the attacks, Mohamed Aalla, was also granted conditional release earlier this week while two others were remanded on charges of membership of a terrorist group and murder.</p> <p>Authorities are still looking into the vehicle attacks in Barcelona’s busy Las Ramblas boulevard last Thursday that killed 13 people and in the resort town of Cambrils several hours later.</p> <p>Spain’s threat level is to remain at Level 4, however security measures are to be enhanced in areas where there are large crowds.</p>
