Murder of 2 Scandinavian Tourists in Morocco, Act of Terror: Source

Three suspects of the Imlil murder

An official source told Morocco World News that the murder of the two Scandinavian tourists was, in fact, a terrorist act.

Twenty four hours following the arrest of the first crime suspect, authorities concluded that the killing bore the characteristics of terrorism.

Local police are currently tracking down the three other suspects.

The terrorists filmed the murder of the two tourists. A video circulating on social media shows a man armed with a knife slicing the head of one of the two tourists.

The video sparked outrage among Moroccans. Some internet users who watched the footage on Facebook advised people to not watch it if they received it, due to the graphic content.

Morocco World News could not verify the accuracy of the video.

No terror organization claimed the act yet. Pending further details from law enforcement, photos of three suspects are going viral on social media.
