The Criminal Chamber in charge of terrorism cases at the annexe of Salé's appeal court postponed Tuesday the trial of 24 people suspected of involvement in the murder of two Scandinavian tourists in the town of Imlil (Province of El Haouz) to May 16, 2019, a judicial source said.

The defendants, including a Spanish-Swiss national, are facing several charges, including forming a gang to prepare and carry out terrorist schemes, deliberately putting the life of people in danger, possessing firearms and attempting to manufacture explosive devices with the aim of undermining public order.

As part of investigations carried out following the discovery of the dead bodies of two foreign tourists in the town of Imlil, the Central Bureau for Judicial Investigations (BCIJ) announced that it had arrested several people, in collaboration with the Royal Gendarmerie and National Police.
