PETER MOSS ONE OF 16 KILLED
VOA REPORTS Morocco's interior minister says the bomb that killed 16 people in a historic square in Marrakesh appears to have been the work of al-Qaida.
The minister told reporters late Friday the bomb was detonated remotely, in a style normally used by the terrorist organization.
The blast tore the facade off a two-story cafe in Jemaa el-Fna square--a bustling tourist destination in the heart of Marrakesh. Authorities say at least 10 foreigners were among the dead, many of them French citizens.
Morocco was rocked by a series of Islamist extremist attacks in 2003 that left 45 people dead, including 12 suicide bombers.
