A 14th person was arrested Saturday in connection with the beheading deaths of two Scandinavian tourists, according to the state-run Maghreb Arab Press. The news agency described him as a “Swiss man who holds Spanish nationality with residence in Morocco.” Authorities have already arrested 13 suspects connected to the killings, state-controlled news agency 2M reported. Four were suspected on killing the women, and appeared to pledge allegiance to ISIS in a video.
Two female tourists from Denmark and Norway were found dead in Morocco with cuts on their necks. The bodies were found in the High Atlas mountain range near the town of Imlil. The isolated area where the bodies were found is a popular hiking destination. A police investigation into the ‘criminal incident’ has been opened.
