Morocco busts Qaeda cell

Moroccan authorities on Tuesday said they had broken up a recruitment cell for al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in the central Fez region, after announcing the discovery of a jihadist network last month.

The aim of the cell was to "enroll and recruit young Moroccans who have embraced jihadist ideas, in order to send them to camps of Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQMI) in Algeria," it added.
