Morocco: 'Terror Cell' Busted

Daily Star

RABAT: Morocco said on Monday it has arrested eight people suspected of plotting attacks against strategic sites, less than a week after the kingdom announced it had dismantled a "terrorist" cell.

The latest arrests targeted a group called Ansar al-Sharia in the Islamic Maghreb, dismantling the cell whose eight members planned to "commit acts of sabotage against strategic sites," said an interior ministry statement.

The cell's targets included "sensitive buildings, security headquarters and tourist sites in several Moroccan cities," it added.

The suspects "were developing contacts with terrorist groups linked to Al-Qaeda," whose North African franchise[AQIM..ed] is active in the Sahel region and in northern Mali, the statement said.[More...]

Libyan Ansar al-Shariah[Partisans of Islamic Law] is responsible for the attack on the Benghazi compound and bragged to AQIM about it.

No bronco bamma, al-Qaeda is not on it's heels.
