COPENHAGEN, 20 DEC - The Moroccan authorities have arrested three other suspects for the murder of two Scandinavian tourists in the mountains of the Atlas of Morocco. A first suspect had been stopped on Tuesday and according to the Moroccan prosecutor he would be affiliated to an Islamist group.
The murder of the two girls, a Danish and a Norwegian, can be considered "politically motivated and therefore an act of terrorism", said Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen, according to whom "there are still dark forces who want to fight our values "and in relation to which" we must not give up ".
