Wonder what religion of peace this heinous act was done in the name of....

Some pretty sick and gruesome sh*t.

Backpackers 'beheaded' in Morocco mountains were ‘executed by terrorists,’ security sources say

The attack on the two Scandinavian backpackers in Morocco could have had a terrorism motive, according to reports.

Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, from Denmark, and Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway, were brutally murdered while camping in the Atlas mountains.

A day after arresting the first suspects authorities believe the horrifying attack bears some of the hallmarks of terrorism.

The killers filmed the vile slaying and a video of the incident is circulating on Moroccan social media sparking outrage in the country, Morocco World News reports.

No terror group has yet claimed the responsibility for the killing.

It’s thought the three suspects from nearby Marrakech may have stalked the pair before attacking them while they slept on Monday.

The women were found in and outside the tent. One had been decapitated, while the other had a serious throat wound.

Got 'em.

Scandinavian hiker murder suspects arrested, may have ties to ISIS: Danish intelligence

Authorities have arrested three more suspects in the murder of two Scandinavian tourists in the Moroccan mountains, as Danish intelligence said the men may have ties to the Islamic State.

Morocco's Central Office of Judicial Research said Thursday that three new suspects had been arrested in Marrakech. Another suspect was arrested Tuesday, and a Moroccan prosecutor said he had affiliations to an extremist group, without naming it.


All three men arrested Thursday are believed to have come from Marrakesh, while one of them had a "court record linked to terrorist acts," according to police spokesman Boubker Sabik.

Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, from Denmark, and Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway, were murdered while camping in the Atlas mountains. The women were found in and outside their tent, located about two hours walking distance from the village of Imlil. One of the women had been decapitated.

The killers are understood to have filmed the double slaying and a video is circulating on Moroccan social media, according to Morocco World News.

Before leaving for Morocco, Jespersen had written on her Facebook page: "Dear friends, I'm going to Morocco in December. Any of you guys who's around by then or any mountain friends who knows something about Mount Toubkal?"

Speaking Thursday, Lars Loekke Rasmussen, the Danish prime minister, said the killing can be considered "politically motivated and thus an act of terror," adding that it was a "beastly crime".

Erna Solberg, the Norwegian prime minister, called the murders a "brutal and meaningless attack on innocents."

In a statement, Denmark's domestic security agency said the preliminary investigation "indicate, according to Moroccan authorities, that the killings may be related to the terrorist organization the Islamic State group."

It continued: "This is a case of an unusually bestial killing of two totally innocent young women."

The killings have shocked Morocco, which is a popular and generally safe tourist destination, although it has battled with Islamic extremism for years.

Authorities in Denmark and Norway on Wednesday warned their citizens from hiking without local guides in Morocco after the savage murders.

Looks like these murders and the arrests of all the suspects may have foiled an upcoming terrorist attack.

Arrests in Morocco backpacker beheadings foiled 'terrorist plot,' investigators reveal

The arrests of nine more men in connection to the beheadings of two Scandinavian backpackers in Morocco foiled a "terrorist plot," investigators revealed Sunday.

Boubker Sabik, a spokesman for the Moroccan security and domestic intelligence services. told Reuters the additional arrests were made as authorities investigated the killings of the two women, identified as Maren Ueland, 28, of Norway, and Louisa Vesterager, 24, of Denmark.

The women were found dead Monday with stab wounds on their neck near the village of Imlil, a starting point for treks to Mount Toubkal, North Africa's highest peak.

The arrests, which investigators said unfolded Friday across the country, bring the total number of suspects in the case of their slayings to 13. Four other men were arrested earlier.

Sabik said the arrests of the nine "spared Morocco a terrorist plot," as they were found with a variety of items including electronic devices, knives, bomb-making materials and unauthorized rifles. He did not elaborate about the plot itself.

The suspects were between the ages of 25 and 33 and were headed to the area where the women were beheaded with the intent to commit a crime, Sabik said.

He said that while the suspects were seen in a video before the bodies were found pledging their allegiance to the Islamic State terror network, the suspects were "lone wolves."

“The crime was not coordinated with Islamic State,” Sabik said. “Lone wolves do not need permission from their leader."

Sabik added that authorities were continuing to investigate footage that allegedly showed one of the women being beheaded. He said, "The video has no background and the clothes of the victim are not identical to those in reality." Norwegian place last week said the video likely was authentic.

Morocco is generally considered safe for tourists but has been routing out Islamic extremists for years.

They are savages that are owed no recognition of any humanity. Every square inch of land there should be turned to glass.

Always pissed me off that liberals argue we must always obey the rules of war / Geneva Convention, that we owe it to our enemies . . . Sorry, no, USA playing by those those rules are the enemy's reward for THEM playing by the rules.

I watched the video. Every civilized person should, the blinders are removed, no delusion is possible about what Moslems stand for. They took a page out of the Chechnen's book, the beheading was filmed on the victim's phone and then the file was sent to her contacts. It was unique from most in that it was started in he back and finished in front, the poor girl was crying for her Mother.

no . disregard for those rules arguably made it harder for countries to condemn such.

That's part of the problem, too much concern for what other countries think and/or waiting for their approval to act.
