Madrid (EFE).- Yassine Kanjaa, the alleged perpetrator of the attacks on two churches in Algeciras (Cádiz) in which a sacristan died and four other people were injured, will appear this Monday before the judge of the National Court Joaquín Gadea.
Kanjaa, a 25-year-old Moroccan who was facing an expulsion file due to his irregular situation in Spain, is in Madrid at the General Information Commissioner after the judge authorized the investigators’ request to extend his detention until all the maximum five days allowed by law in cases of terrorism.
The term expires at 7:00 p.m. this Monday, although it will foreseeably be summoned earlier by the judge, who in principle considers that Kanjaa acted guided by a “terrorist will” that the magistrate links, at least in principle, with “jihadist Salafism” .
Pending the judge’s ruling, the Police have searched the house where the detainee resided and, according to sources of the investigation, found a flash drive that, in principle, included “rudimentary” and basic jihadist propaganda.
It will be essential to determine his motivation the result of the searches that the investigators have been carrying out on the flash drive, on the detainee’s mobile devices, on the conversations he had and with whom, and on the pages he was able to visit on the Internet.
The Daesh terrorist organization has not claimed responsibility for the action, but it has echoed it through related media.
Kanjaa attacked two churches in Algeciras last Wednesday afternoon armed with a large machete.
Dressed in a black djellaba, he killed the sacristan Diego Valencia and wounded several people, including the priest Antonio Rodríguez.
