The attack on the two Scandinavian backpackers in Morocco could have had a terrorism motive, according to reports.
Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, from Denmark, and Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway, were brutally murdered while camping in the Atlas mountains.
A day after arresting the first suspects authorities believe the horrifying attack bears some of the hallmarks of terrorism.
The killers filmed the vile slaying and a video of the incident is circulating on Moroccan social media sparking outrage in the country, Morocco World News reports.
No terror group has yet claimed the responsibility for the killing.
It’s thought the three suspects from nearby Marrakech may have stalked the pair before attacking them while they slept on Monday.
The women were found in and outside the tent. One had been decapitated, while the other had a serious throat wound.
