Morocco’s Ministry of Interior announced on Wednesday that three Afghans who were using falsified Pakistani passports to reach out to Denmark through Morocco have been arrested by police at Marrakech Menara International Airport.
The Ministry of Interior further states that the detainees were carrying letters “with jihadist content,” on them.
It further states that by arresting the group an “international migration network” designed to feed Jihadists is also exposed.
