'Mother of Satan' TATP found in Spain bomb factory

'Mother of Satan' TATP found in Spain bomb factoryTraces of the easy-to-make but deadly explosive TATP — known as the “mother of Satan” — have been found in a house where the alleged attackers in the twin assaults in Spain were believed to be building bombs, police said Sunday. Used by jihadists everywhere from Paris and Brussels to the battlefields of Syria and Iraq, the dangerously unstable TATP has become the explosive of choice for the Islamic State group, which claimed the attacks in Barcelona and the seaside resort of Cambrils. Investigators uncovered ingredients of the explosive at a house in the town of Alcanar, around 200 kilometres (120 miles) south of Barcelona, believed to be the terror cell’s bomb-making factory.
