Morocco: Terror group bigger then first throught

April 26, 2007 18:04

Recent police investigations into a string of suicide bombings since March suggest the group suspected of mounting them was more sophisticated, better funded and better armed than first believed, the interior minister said. Police have so far questioned 59 people and begun court proceedings against 31 since a suicide bomber blew himself up last month in a Casablanca cyber cafe, Moroccan Interior Minister Chakib Benmoussa told parliament Wednesday. What officials initially suspected to be a botched attack by a hapless jihadi whose bombs detonated accidentally took on more sinister dimensions as police uncovered an alleged plot targeting tourist sites around Casablanca and across Morocco.
