Al-Qaeda denies role in Morocco cafe blast
Rabat, May 8 (ANI): Terrorist group Al-Qaeda has denied it had any role in the Morocco cafe bombing, which killed 17 people last month.
The chief suspect in the cafe bombing in Marrakesh is believed to have disguised himself as a hippie and was thought to have links to the Al-Qaeda.
Adel al Othmani reportedly entered the cafe on April 28 in Marrakesh, heavily disguised and carrying a guitar.
"He walked into the cafe wearing a wig and carrying a guitar and the two bags where he hid the explosive devices. He looked like a hippie," Sky News quoted an unnamed source, as saying.
"He ordered an orange juice before leaving the cafe and behind him the two bags. He used a mobile phone to detonate the bombs afterwards," the source added.
Three men have been arrested in connection with the blast, including al Othmani.
A Briton and eight French tourists were among the 17 killed in the bombing.
It was the deadliest attack in Morocco since 12 suicide bombers killed 33 members of the public in coordinated attacks in Casablanca in 2003. (ANI)
