The funeral of Maren Ueland took place Monday, January the 21st, in Time, a municipality in Rogaland county. The church service was attended by Morocco’s ambassador to Norway, Lamia Radi, Norway’s health minister and several dozen students from the University of Southeastern Norway, where Maren and her Danish friend used to study, reports AFP quoted by the Daily Mail.  

Ahead of the service, the Moroccan ambassador told TV2 that «Morocco wanted to be present today to express first its solidarity, to share the sorrow of the family».

«At the same time, (we want) to make it very clear that we strongly condemn the horrible murders of those innocent girls», added the diplomat.

Lamia Radi also denounced the «barbary» and «ignominy» of the killings, reading aloud «messages from Moroccan people expressing their sadness».

For the record, the bodies of Maren Ueland (28) and Louisa Vesterager Jespersen (24) were found 10 kilometers away from Imlil by French mountaineers.

They had arrived in Morocco to prepare for a mountaineering tournament and climb Mount Toubkal. Since this double terrorist assassination, about twenty people have been arrested.
