The Jewish couple killed in the suicide attack at a cafe in Marrakesh, Morroco Thursday were identified as 30-year-old pregnant-Israeli Michal Weizman and Morrocan-born Massoud Zikri.

The Israeli Consul General in Shanghai confirmed the deaths and said the couple had traveled from their home in China to Marrakesh with their two-year-old son to visit the husband's family for Passover.

They left the baby with the grandmother while they went for a visit in the city. They were in the cafe when the suicide bomber detonated the explosives.
