Morocco seeks French terror suspect

Morocco seeks French terror suspect

A senior Moroccan security official says Morocco is looking for a French national suspected of ties with an alleged al-Qaida-linked terror cell dismantled earlier this week.
The official says the suspect is named Ahmed Sahnouni, a dual-national born in Morocco.
The official, who requested anonymity Wednesday due to the sensitivity of the issue, said the suspect operated both in Morocco and France. French officials weren't immediately available for comment.
An alleged cell of 24 terror suspects was dismantled earlier this week in Morocco. Authorities said they were planning attacks in the North African kingdom and readying to send militants to fight in Iraq or Afghanistan.
