Second suspect arrested in Spain terror attacks released

A second suspect arrested in the aftermath of last week's twin terror attacks in Spain has been freed.

Under the terms of his release, Salh el Karib's passport has been confiscated and he will be required to attend court once a week.

El Karib runs an internet cafe in the town where most alleged members of the 12-strong terror cell lived, and he was accused of purchasing plane tickets for two men in the group.

Court documents suggest credit cards in his name were used to buy flights for Driss Oukabir as well as Abdelbaki es Satty, the imam believed to have masterminded the plot.

The investigation has found that el Karib's business sells plane tickets as part of its services, meaning he did not necessarily play a part in the terror cell.

"There is no indication that the detainee had any relationship with the people allegedly involved in the terrorist organisation that is being investigated," the document said.
