RABAT - Morocco's interior ministry said on Thursday police have arrested four French nationals linked to what it called terrorist groups operating in the city of Marrakesh and Western Sahara's Laayoune.

Morocco, a Western ally against Islamist militancy, often says it has broken up radical cells accused of plotting attacks inside and outside the kingdom

"Based on intelligence information ... police arrested four French Islamists, including two with Polish and Rwandan origins, based in the cities of Laayoune and Marrakesh and suspected of having links to terrorist organizations," the ministry said in a statement.
