Al-Qaeda Denies Morocco Attack Responsibility
The North African wing of Al-Qaeda over the weekend denied being involved in the recent cafe bombing in Marrakesh, Morocco. Sixteen people were killed in the attack, including two Israelis. Moroccan authorities have arrested three suspects, including a member of Al-Qaeda.
Despite the denial, the group said that “we must continue the struggle to release our prisoners and remove the government.”
