One Officer, Three Suspected Terrorists Killed in Morocco


Three suspected militants have been killed during a raid by Moroccan police on their hideout in Casablanca.

One of the men blew himself up after police burst into the apartment early Tuesday. Another was shot before he could detonate his explosives. A third suspect fled and later blew himself up.

Morocco's official news agency says a police officer who was wounded in the third incident later died of his injuries.

Police say the raid was part of an investigation into a March 11th suicide bombing at an Internet cafe in Casablanca that injured four people.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
