His brother died when he struck his head on a high speed rail bridge while riding on top of a truck.
Rabat – A man tried to derail the Al Boraq high speed train linking Casablanca to Tangier on Monday by throwing a three-meter tree trunk onto the train tracks.
The gendarmerie arrested the 30-year-old man and recreated the crime scene, according to Moroccan news outlets.
Morocco World News contacted the national railway operator (ONCF), but the company did not comment on the incident.
The man, who lives in Kenitra Province, north of Rabat, reportedly acted out to avenge his brother’s death. His brother died when his head struck a high speed rail bridge while he was riding on top of a truck.
Early Monday morning, the high speed train stopped for over 30 minutes before the path was clear. The individual does not suffer from a mental illness, according to Moroccan outlet Al Akhbar. He reportedly made a video of his plans.
