Bomb suspect dies in custody

The man who allegedly organised suicide bombings that killed 43 in Casablanca 12 days ago has died in police custody, officials said yesterday. The death of Abdelhaq Moulsabbat was blamed on heart and liver problems. “His health condition did not allow investigators, unfortunately, to complete all the elements of the investigation,” a prosecutor, Moulay Abdellah Alaoui Belghiti, told Morocco’s state television. Moulsabbat was arrested on Monday in Fes, whose poorer districts are said to be an Islamist stronghold. Mr Belghiti described him as the “general coordinator” and “emir” behind the May 16 attacks on five Casablanca locations where foreigners or Jews were gathered. His death came amid concern among civil rights groups at a nine-month-old campaign designed to prevent Islamist violence. Full Story
