Police in Morocco have arrested three more suspects in the killing of two female tourists, one from Norway and one from Denmark, in the Atlas Mountains, a spokesman said on Thursday.

A day earlier the Moroccan authorities said they were seeking three more suspects after one man was arrested in Marrakech. The general prosecutor said the man in custody was a member of a militant group, but did not name the organization.
