A HEROIC police officer killed four terrorists single-handedly in a shootout in Cambrils after the sick jihadis rammed a van into pedestrians – just hours after the horror in the heart of Barcelona.

The officer – who local media has said is female – wiped out the jihadis seconds after they rammed their Audi A3 through crowds and into her police car.
As her partner lay wounded in the vehicle, the outnumbered officer faced a one-on-one clash with the crazed gang, who escaped their overturned car and marched towards her armed with machetes, axes and knives.
The Trooper agent, who had been on a routine patrol, acted fast to fire rounds and take out four of the five-strong mob before they caused more bloodshed on the public.
The final suspect attempted to flee on foot before being gunned down by officers in a nearby park.
The hero police officer acted despite the terrorists wearing suicide vests, which later were found to be fakes.
Officers had been conducting normal checks at a roundabout on the Cambrils seafront when an Audi A3 vehicle came careering down the street, ramming into a group of people before crashing into the police car.
The injured agent, of the regional police force Mossos d’Esquadra, which tranlated into the Troopers, suffered a heavy blow to the head and a broken tibia.
A total of seven people were injured in the Cambrils attack, and earlier this morning it was announced that a female victim has died as a result of her injuries.
The death takes yesterday’s death toll to 14 after 13 people were killed when a white Fiat van rammed into crowds of people on Las Ramblas in the heart of Barcelona.
The driver rampaged several hundred metres down Las Ramblas, zig-zagging through crowds in order to kill as many people as possible before crashing the vehicle and fleeing on foot.
The van driver remains at large, with police searching for 18-year-old Moussa Oukabir in connection with the horrific attack.
Two years ago, in the Kiwi Q&A app, Moussa Oukabir assured that if he were the absolute king of the world, the first thing he would do would be “to kill the unfaithful and only leave Muslims follow the religion.”
Moussa Oukabir, the alleged perpetrator of the Las Ramblas attack, and his older brother Driss, who was detained yesterday after his ID documents were found in the van believed to have been used in the Barcelona attack, are registered at the Moroccan consulate in Gerona.
The two brothers have lived in Ripoll for many years and studied at the local school.
Both were well known in the small town, and Driss worked for a while in a restaurant there.
he mayor of Ripoll, Jordi Munell, described the Oukabirs as “a normal family”.
He added: “We are surprised to see these tragic events being related to a family from Ripoll.
“They have lived here for many years and we have never had a problem.
“People here are sad and worried.
“We are a town of around 11,000 people with 9 per cent immigrants. We practically all know each other.”
