Once again, it wasn’t the militant wing of the Salvation Army (with apologies to Mike Meyers). “Morocco dismantles active terror cell,” from the Associated Press, March 2:
RABAT, Morocco (AP) — Authorities have dismantled a six-member terror cell that was planning attacks in the North African kingdom, Morocco’s official news agency says.
The six suspected Islamists were active in several cities and “planned to commit terrorist acts inside national territory,” the MAP agency says, quoting a statement from the national police.
The cell’s members will be tried after an investigation, the report says.
Morocco has led a crackdown on suspected terrorists since 2003, when al-Qaeda-linked extremists killed 45 people in a string of attacks in Casablanca, the country’s economic center.
