A heavy explosion destroyed a house in that town.
3 men were in the house.
2 of them died in the blast the other is taken into custody by the police, one of the man who died is according to the police an Imam from Ripoll.
A spokesman said they were suspected of making bombs.
All three incidents are related according to that spokesman.
Police now speaks of 11 suspects in total.
They all came from Ripoll 100 km from Barcelona.
The original plan was to fill 3 vans with gascontainers and to blow them up.
Their main target was supposed to be the famous Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona.
The explosion in the house changed this and so they decided to use the vans as murderweapons.
The Morroccan who drove into people at Ramblas was shot dead by police today.
In total the police killed 9 and arrested the other 3 of this 12 man cel.

Policeofficers shot a man armed with a knive who entered a policestation in Cornella.
He shouted Allah Akbar according to the police.
The officers tried to disarm the man but failed to do so, when he remained agressive they shot the man.
He was a 29 year old male off Algerian origine, he was just divorced from his Spanish wife.
The investigation now is focussing on the probability that the man had others helping him.
The attack came a year after the incident at Barcelona and Cambrill.
