An expert marksman has been arrested on suspicion of planning a "lone wolf" attack to assassinate Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.

The 63-year-old suspect, named locally as Manuel Murillo Sanchez, was found with an arsenal of weapons, including sniper-style rifles and a submachine gun, at his home.

The private security guard, who has extensive experience with long-range guns, is said to have "spoken of his intention to attack Pedro Sanchez in WhatsApp groups".

A spokesman for Mossos d’Esquadra police, near Barcelona, said: "We are not confirming the name but we can confirm a 63-year-old man has been arrested in Terrassa.

"He has experience as a sports-orientated marksman with long-range long-barrelled guns.

"He had spoken of his intention to attack Pedro Sanchez in WhatsApp groups.

"An arsenal of weapons, consisting of 16 long-barrelled weapons and 16 shotguns, was found at his home.

"He has been sent to prison following a court appearance."

Another police source told Spanish daily Publico, which broke news of the arrest: "He was the perfect lone wolf, a nobody with a gun licence whose expertise marksmanship didn’t arouse any suspicion, in the same way he didn’t arouse suspicion by carrying a pistol because he needed it for his work."

The detainee is said to have decided to target the Spanish PM after his government approved a decree in August allowing dictator Francisco Franco to be exhumed from the Valley of the Fallen mausoleum near Madrid, and given to his family to be buried elsewhere.

The suspect reportedly asked contacts in a small WhatsApp group he was part of for help obtaining information on the Spanish PM’s agenda so he knew where he would be at any given time.

He is said to have told the group: "I am ready to sacrifice myself for Spain."

He is being held at a prison in Martorell near Barcelona.
