Morocco’s BCIJ has arrested five suspects with alleged links to terrorism in Tangier.
Rabat – Morocco’s Central Bureau of Judicial Investigation (BCIJ) arrested five suspects with alleged ties to terrorism on Monday in several neighborhoods in Tangier, including Al Aouama, Ashande, El Merse, and Al Warda.
The suspects are currently in custody for further investigation into their ties with other possible terror suspects.
The arrests followed similar operations in several Moroccan cities on Friday.
Friday’s arrests were linked to the murders of the two Scandinavian tourists, killed near Mount Toubkal on Monday.
BCIJ made the arrests in several cities across Morocco, including Essaouira; Sidi Bennour, near Casablanca; Marrakech; Tangier; and Chtouka Ait Baha, near Agadir.
