Morocco’s BCIJ Arrests 3 Suspects for Murders of Scandinavian Tourists

Four Suspects Involved in Murder of Scandinavian Tourists Near Mount Toubkal Morocco World News has received a statement confirming that Morocco’s Central Bureau of Judicial Investigation (BCIJ) arrested three more suspects in Marrakech involved in murdering two Scandinavian tourists 10 kilometers from the village of Imlil in the Atlas mountains.

BCIJ had arrested the first suspect on Monday, only a few hours after the bodies of the two young female hikers from Norway and Denmark were found.

Authorities have not excluded terrorism as a potential motive. One of the suspects allegedly has ties to terrorism.

Confirming his arrest on Wednesday night, Morocco’s public prosecutor at Rabat’s Court of Appeals said that the first suspect is a part of a “radicalized” group.

An official source also told Morocco World News that Morocco’s authorities are investigating the murders as a potential terrorist act.

Photos of three suspects were widely shared by social media users, who strongly condemned the “hideous” crime committed against the tourists from Norway and Denmark.
