The Criminal Chamber in charge of terrorism cases at the annexe of Salé's appeal court decided, on Thursday, to take the case of the murder of two Scandinavian tourists in the Imlil region (El-Haouz province) under advisement, after hearing the last statement of the suspects.

The 24 individuals, including a man with Swiss and Spanish nationalities, are standing trial over the charges of «setting up a gang to prepare and commit terrorist acts, deliberately putting the life of people in danger, possession of firearms and attempted manufacture of explosives in violation of the law, as part of a collective project aimed at seriously 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), under the directorate general for national territory surveillance, announced that it had arrested several suspects, in collaboration with the Royal Gendarmerie and the National Police.
