A total of nineteen people have been arrested following the ghastly murder of two Scandinavian tourists in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains. These include four main suspects and 15 others accused of having connections to the alleged killers. The police called labelled the main suspects “lone wolves” despite their oath of allegiance to Daesh*.
Raids by Moroccan police hunting the killers of two Scandinavian hikers, Louisa Vesterager Jespersen (24) from Denmark, and Maren Ueland (28) from Norway, have unwittingly helped foil a terror plot. Officers found bomb-making materials, and “spared Morocco a terrorist plot”, a spokesman for the country’s intelligence services said, as quoted by Reuters.
