The attacker, Yasin Kanza, a Moroccan national and around 40 years old, was armed with a large machete and could be a lone wolf and, consequently, it could be an attack for jihadist purposes, although this point is pending investigation. investigation by the National Police, which has taken over the investigations.
Although the Ministry of the Interior remains cautious about the attack, the National Court, which is in charge of judging terrorist affairs in Spain, is investigating the matter as possible terrorism, while the Islamic community in the area, Campo de Gibraltar, did not hesitate calling it a “vile terrorist attack”.
Sources of the investigation have indicated to EFE that they do not rule out that it is a lone jihadist actor, although this point is pending the police investigation.
The same sources have indicated that at the time of the events the alleged perpetrator was wearing a black djellaba, a symbol that his intention was not to immolate himself, since if he had wanted to do so he would have dressed in white.
The injured priest underwent surgery and is out of danger
The events occurred after 7:00 p.m. when the attacker entered the parish of Santa María Auxiliadora, broke into the chapel of San Isidro and stabbed the Salesian vicar Antonio Rodríguez, 74, who was celebrating the Eucharist at 7:00 p.m. late.
As a result of the attack, he was seriously injured, but after undergoing surgery, the priest Rodríguez is out of danger.
Next, the armed man entered the Church of Nuestra Señora de La Palma in the central Plaza Alta in Algeciras, where he caused various damage and attacked the sacristan Diego Valencia, who managed to leave the temple, but was hit by the attacker outside. . The wounds he caused with the machete caused his death.
Later, supposedly the same assailant went to the Chapel of Europe, a temple located opposite the previous one, and pounded on the door, but since the church was closed, he left.
During the attacks three other people were injured.
At some point during the attacks, the image of the man was captured by a camera: he was walking around calmly with a machete.
The Local Police finally arrested the attacker in the vicinity of Plaza Alta and turned him over to the National Police, who are guarding him at the Algeciras police station.
Condemnation of the Government, the opposition and the Islamic community
The reactions of condemnation did not wait. The President of the Government of Spain, Pedro Sánchez, expressed his condolences to the relatives of the sacristan who died “in the terrible attack in Algeciras”, while he wished “a speedy recovery to the injured”.
The opposition leader, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, also showed his dismay “at the attacks”, as well as Vox and Ciudadanos.
The Spanish Episcopal Conference (CEE) expressed its strongest condemnation of violence, “which cannot take place in the society in which we live.” and conveyed his closeness and affection to the families of the victims, to the diocese of Cádiz and to the society of Campo de Gibraltar.
The Islamic community also showed its rejection: “With deep pain and great sadness, the Union of Islamic Communities of Campo de Gibraltar has learned of the vile and cowardly terrorist attack perpetrated on Wednesday night in the city of Algeciras by an individual apparently of Arab origin”, he indicated in a statement sent to EFE.
