Latest update : 2011-05-05

Moroccan authorities are believed to have identified two suspects in the April 28 bomb attack in Marrakesh that killed 16 people, including eight French, France's Foreign Minister Alain Juppé said Wednesday.

AFP - France has received information suggesting that Moroccan authorities have identified two suspects in an April 28 bomb attack in Marrakesh that killed 16 people, Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said Wednesday.

The blast ripped through a popular tourist cafe and eight of the victims were French. Paris has sent officers to assist the Moroccan investigation and French anti-terrorism judges have opened a formal probe.

"For the moment, the investigation is continuing," Juppe said. "From the information I have received, it is going well. We seem to have identified two possible suspects. There has been no claim of responsibility."
