Three sentenced to death for murdering Scandinavian tourists in Morocco



Three men accused of murdering two Scandinavian hikers in the Atlas Mountains last year were sentenced to death, an anti-terrorist court in Morocco ruled Thursday.

Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway, and Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, from Denmark, were found dead in December 2018 at their campsite in a remote part of the Atlas Mountains with wounds on their nape. The incident was classified by the Moroccan authorities as a terrorist attack after some of the men involved had committed themselves to the Islamic State.

The men were tried after an anti-terror law and were the main defendants in a case in which two dozen suspects were brought to trial over the deaths of women in the last year.

Abdessamad Al Joud, Younes Ouziad and Rachid Afati were sentenced to death after a seven-month trial, while a fourth man, Abderahman Khayali, was sentenced to life imprisonment, according to the Moroccan state. Television.
