Spanish police searched a building in Barcelona on Monday, thought to belong to the perpetrator of a knife attack on police officers.

Officers from the Special Intervention Group (GEI) were seen searching the man's home in the Cornella area of the city.

The man allegedly yelled "Allahu akbar" (God is greatest) before he lunged towards officers in a police station with a knife, before he was shot dead.
