The main perpetrator, imbued with the jihadist ideology and who supposedly swore allegiance to al Qaeda, had already made several attempts to reach war zones like Chechnya and Iraq before deciding to carry out a terrorist act inside Morocco, the Interior Ministry added. After learning how to make explosives in the Internet, the statement pointed out, he has developed two remote controlled explosive devices that he brought to Marrakech.
He entered disguising as a tourist at the café of Argana, a site visited by several Moroccan and foreign tourists, the same source said.
The preliminary investigations undertaken by the security services have uncovered the remains of explosives and some tools that were rid of after committing the terrorist act, it underlined. The suspects will be brought to justice after the completion of the ongoing investigation, under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor, the statement concluded."
