Moroccan police arrest would-be terrorists


Moroccan security police arrested 11 men who reportedly planned to carry out terrorist attacks at Jewish and tourist sites in the country.

The four Palestinians and seven Moroccans, reportedly a cell of Islamic Jihad, were arrested Monday, according to the Berlin-based International Institute for Education and Research on Anti-Semitism, which cited the Moroccan newspaper Al Ahdath Al Maghrebia.

Targets reportedly included tourist sites, as well as Jewish and pro-Israel activists.

Early last month, an e-mail with photos of Jewish NGO activists circulated among Islamists in Morocco, according to the institute.

A blacklist of “Zionists” also was circulated last week at a preparation meeting for an Islamist conference scheduled for Friday called the National Observatory against Normalization (with Israel). The list included at least one government employee, journalists, NGO activists, artists and politicians, the institute reported.
