A Moroccan Court has postponed until May 30, the trial of twenty four suspects charged in connection to the murder of two Scandinavian female tourists.
The postponement was the second in the high-profile trial since it started on May 2nd.
The Moroccan authorities found the bodies of Maren Ueland of Norway and Louisa Vesterager Jespersen of Denmark near the summit of Mount Toubkal in the High Atlas mountain range with cuts to their necks on December 17th.
The crime triggered shock in Morocco and abroad.
At the trial, twenty four detained defendants, twenty three Moroccans and a Swiss national with Spanish citizenship face charges of premeditated murder, setting up a terrorist group and illegal possession of firearms.
At the centre of the trial are four suspects, who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State militia in a video made days before the tourists’ bodies were found.
