Daesh terror cell dismantled in Morroco

RABAT, Morocco 

A terrorist cell affiliated with Daesh terrorist organization was dismantled in the suburbs of central Morocco’s city of Marrakesh, the country's Interior Ministry said Tuesday.

In a statement, the ministry said the cell was composed of four terrorists aged between 25 and 40.

Suspicious chemicals and explosive materials were also seized.

Initial investigation shows the cell was in contact with foreign elements and was plotting a "terror attack" in the Kingdom.

Late in April, Moroccan authorities dismantled another terrorist cell linked to the Daesh terrorist organization.

According to official figures released late last year, the Moroccan authorities have dismantled more than 180 terrorist cells since 2002.
