Moroccan among 19 arrested for murder of Scandinavian tourists
The extent of the jihadi threat was tragically underlined by the beheading this month of Norwegian Maren Ueland and Dane Louisa Jespersen who were hiking in the High Atlas Mountains.
Authorities say the man, who has not been named, was recruiting and urging young extremists to attack tourists.
Moroccan security forces have broken up no fewer than 20 terror cells in the past year.
The four men being held for the killing pledged allegiance to so-called Islamic State.
Moroccan authorities insist, however, they were lone wolves.
