ALGECIRAS, Spain (AP) — Spanish police have raided the home of a 25-year-old Moroccan man held over the machete attacks at two Catholic churches the previous day that left a church officer dead and a priest injured in the southern city of Algeciras. Spain’s interior minister said that police searched the suspect’s home on Thursday to “determine the nature” of Wednesday night’s attacks. A National Court judge is investigating the incident as a possible act of terrorism. The minister said that investigators don’t think anyone else was involved. Witnesses said that a machete-wielding man jumped on the altar of a church before chasing a sacristan outside and inflicting mortal wounds.
