The move comes after two female hikers – 28-year-old Maren Ueland from Norway and 24-year-old Louisa Vesterager Jespersen from Denmark were found dead in the Moroccan mountains with signs of an atrocious murder.
Moroccan police have stated that nine more people had been arrested over the murder of the European hikers.
Ueland and Jespersen were in the country on a backpacking trip. Sunday evening they set up their tent in the Atlas Mountains, on the way up to the tallest peak of the region — Toubkal peak. On Monday, however, both women were found brutally murdered.
