Morocco detains 4 IS suspects
The Moroccan police have arrested four “dangerous” suspected jihadists linked to the Islamic State (IS) group. The suspects were planning attacks across the country, the government said on Thursday.
Investigators apprehended a man on Wednesday in Meknes. He had allegedly been “planning terrorist attacks in Morocco”, according to a statement from the Interior Ministry.
The suspect had “acquired vast experience in the manufacture of remote-detonated explosives” and was “about to procure essential materials to make” a bomb, it added.
