RABAT, March 4, (AFP): Morocco said Thursday that the alleged members of a jihadist cell it arrested in mid-February, including a French national, were plotting to carry out “biological” attacks in the kingdom. “Some of the seized substances (from the suspects) are classified by international organisations which specialise in health issues as falling within the category of biological weapons dangerous for their capacity to paralyse and destroy the nervous system and cause death,” the interior ministry said. “Members of the terrorist cell had prepared these deadly substances with a view to using them in their terrorist projects inside the kingdom,” it said in a statement.
