Four men have been arrested in connection to the killings of two Scandinavian tourists in a popular hiking spot in Morocco. The bodies of Maren Ueland (left), a 28-year-old from Norway, and Louisa Vesterager Jespersen (right), a 24-year-old from Denmark, were found by other tourists in an isolated area in the Atlas Mountains on Monday, according to the Associated Press. Moroccan officials said that one suspect was thought to have extremist ties but did not provide further details. Denmark’s prime minister said the killings may have been “politically motivated, and thereby an act of terror.” Danish Security and Intelligence Services said it is working to authenticate a video circulating on social media, which appeared to show one of the victims getting murdered, calling it an “unusually gruesome” case, according to the New York Times. The women had been studying at the same university in Norway to become tour guides, and their killings has shocked Morocco, a popular tourist destination where attacks on foreigners are extremely rare.
