Two cute young girls think it is a good idea to go hiking alone in the mountains of Muslim North Africa - - - after all it would be "racist" to think you might not be safe.
(Telegraph) - Two Scandinavian tourists killed in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains were the victims of a terrorist attack, prosecutors believe.
One man has been arrested following the discovery on Monday of the bodies of 24-year-old Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, from Denmark, and Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway.
One of the women had been beheaded, a source told AFP. Both had been mutilated. Investigators say they were both sexually assaulted.
A suspect in the murder was arrested in Marrakech on Tuesday, and was known to have ties to radical Islamist terror networks.
Police are hunting for three other suspects.
Boubker Sabik, a police spokesman, said terrorism was suspected and that the three suspects on the run had been "identified and a search for them is under way by all the security services".
One of the three had "a court record linked to terrorist acts", he said, while the prosecutor general's office said the man in custody also belonged to an extremist group.
The women's bodies were found in an isolated area near Imlil, on the way to Toubkal, North Africa's highest peak and a popular hiking destination.
Investigations are also continuing to authenticate a video tape shared on social media claiming to show the killing of one of the tourists, the General Prosecutor said in a statement.
State broadcaster 2M released photos and videos yesterday (WEDS) of forensic investigators and others working around the women's brightly coloured tent on a rocky hillside. The broadcaster said the tent held food and belongings for three people, including an ID card.
A local guide who works in the area told AFP the body of one woman was found inside the tent, and the other outside of it.
