Two IS militants arrested in Morocco
Two Islamic State (IS) militants, who were planning to leave for training camps in Syria and Iraq, were arrested in Morocco, the interior ministry said.
The two have connections with foreign extremists and were planning to receive military training in IS camps before carrying out attacks in Morocco, the ministry said in a statement Friday.
One of them had close relations with a criminal group in Fez city. The detentions led to the arrest of four more people in connection with the gang.
Morocco is facing a "serious terrorist threat" linked to the growing number of people joining jihadi groups in the Middle East.
Interior Minister Mohamed Hazard said in July that around 1,120 Moroccan nationals and some 2,000 of Moroccan origin have been enrolled in terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq.
