The wife of an American who died in the Barcelona terror attack has revealed how they were celebrating their first wedding anniversary on the day he was killed.

barcelona attackHeidi Nunes-Tucker, 40, says she isn’t sure how she will recover after losing the love of her life Jared, 42.

The couple, from California, had decided to visit a friend in Barcelona after earlier taking in Paris and Venice on their holiday.

The couple were on their way to a beach when they decided to stop for sangria at a café on the street of La Ramblas.

Tucker told his wife that he needed to go to the bathroom and she never saw him again.

No more than 30 seconds to a minute after he left, all mayhem broke out and people were screaming and crying and running, she said.

I don’t want to wake up without him next to me, and I don’t want to watch TV without him.

“All of it is just going to be a lot more empty.

The Barcelona terror gang planned to murder thousands of people using an explosive known as the Mother of Satan, it emerged last night.

It is thought they intended to simultaneously detonate bombs in vans at three locations in the Spanish city.

Targets included the Sagrada Familia church, a Unesco World Heritage Site, which is one of the most visited attractions in Europe.

The other two locations were the port area of the city and the Ramblas, where a van was deliberately driven into crowds on Thursday afternoon, killing 13 and injuring 130.

Police are working on the theory the cell was forced to abort the truck bombs plan when their explosives factory in Alcanar, 120 miles from Barcelona, blew up accidentally on Wednesday.

Josep Lluis Trapero, the chief of Catalonia police, said: They were preparing one or several attacks in Barcelona an explosion in Alcanar stopped this as they no longer had the material they needed to commit attacks of an even bigger scope.
