A suspected terrorist blew himself up and another was shot and killed by police as he was about to detonate his explosives Tuesday in Morocco's commercial capital, Casablanca, Moroccan authorities said. The two men had been sought by police for their suspected role in the March 11 bombing of a Casablanca Internet cafe. The two suspects killed Tuesday were both carrying explosives, said an Interior Ministry official and the official MAP news agency. They said one suspect blew himself up as police were about to arrest him. No one else was injured. The other man was on the verge of detonating his explosives when police shot him, said the official and MAP. Mentala died of his injuries shortly afterward. Police were still trying to identify the man who blew himself up. Police were also searching for a third suspect.
