MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Friday, reports emerged that three suspected members of an extremist cell with ties to the Daesh were detained in northeast of Morocco.
According to Le360 news portal’s Sunday report, citing intelligence sources, the detainees were in constant contact with Daesh members in Iraq for staging terrorist attacks in Brussels. Other targets included military objects, a police station and an airport in Nador.
The Daesh militant group controls large areas of Syria and Iraq and is banned in many countries, including Russia.
