Suspected mastermind of blasts dies in Moroccan detention
The suspected mastermind of this month's devastating suicide explosions in Casablanca has died of chronic heart and liver problems while in detention, the city's prosecutor said Wednesday.
A total of 43 people including 12 suicide bombers were killed in the May 16 attacks in Morocco's largest city.
The suspect, identified as Abdelhak and also known as Moul al-Sebbat, was arrested Monday in the northern city of Fes and died while being transferred to a hospital in Casablanca, the prosecutor said.
An autopsy found that he had "died a natural death" that was "the result of heart and liver problems," according to the prosecutor. (Albawaba.com)
