The video shows the suspects accused of murdering two tourists pledging allegiance to ISIS leader al-Baghdadi.
Rabat – A statement from the public prosecutor at Rabat’s Court of Appeals said that Morocco’s Central Bureau of Judicial Investigation (BCIJ) is investigating whether the video of four people suspected of murdering two Scandinavian tourists is authentic.
A video that has gone viral on social media shows the four people suspected of murdering Louisa Vesterager Jespersen and Maren Ueland near Mount Toubkal pledging allegiance to the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
In the video, one of the suspects expresses the group’s intention to carry out terrorist attacks.
The investigations and technical intelligence found that “the published video was shot last week before the criminal acts in question were committed,” according to the public prosecutor’s statement.
The statement emphasized that investigations are underway, supervised by the public prosecutor’s office, to determine the motives and circumstances surrounding the crime.
