Jewish Couple Among Dead in Morocco Attack
CNN – A series of explosions that killed 15 people when they erupted Thursday morning in a cafe in the city of Marrakesh was an act of terrorism, Morocco’s interior minister said. “We will investigate this act of terrorism and find those responsible … and their nationality,” Taib Cherqaoui told reporters.
The incident occurred around 11 a.m. at Cafe Argana in Marrakesh’s old city, which is designated by the United Nation’s cultural arm as a World Heritage Site. Tourists flock to it in high numbers this time of the year and it is usually packed with stalls, story-tellers and snake-charmers.
