By BI: All together now…why would anyone choose to vacation in a Muslim country like Morocco? Yet 500,000 Brits and millions of of Europeans vacation there every year. Unsuspecting victims are left badly injured and covered in blood on a Moroccan street as a sight-seeing day turned to terror.
UK Mirror In this shocking footage the two men and a woman seem to be in desperate need of hospital care after the unprovoked attack in broad daylight in the city of Fez which is popular with tourists.
The trio, believed to have been German tourists, were visiting the neighbourhood of Talaa Lakbira, in northeastern Moroccan city of Fez often referred to as the country’s cultural capital.
The footage shows a commotion in the street as a group of passersby intervene to help the two men, including one who is bleeding from the head.
A few seconds later the cameraman runs over to another site where a number of good Samaritans have detained the two men, aged 21 and 25, who are believed to have been responsible.
The film also picks up what appears to be a large bread knife that has been stabbed into the ground – while pools of blood can be seen all over the cobbled pavements.
The three victims were rushed to Fez University Hospital following the daylight incident.
The news of the attack has sparked concern for the safety of visitors to Morocco as the threat from ISIS continues to send shock waves through North African countries like Egypt and Tunisia which have been rocked by a number of terror incidents.
While this attack has not been linked to militants or Islamic fundamentalists, Moroccan and Spanish authorities seized 14 terror suspects from an Islamic State cell plotting to carry out attacks in the north African holiday hotspot.
Fez was the former capital of Morocco and is the second largest city. It is now regarded as the ‘Islamic spiritual capital’ but has become marred in recent years for its shocking crime rates.
