More on Morocco Bombings

Moroccan sources have told the New York Times that the bombings last week were financed by al Qaeda, which sent more than $50,000 into Morocco to pay expenses. The actual bombers (twelve are dead, two others in custody) were recruited and trained by a small group of Moroccans who, in turn, had received training in Afghanistan. Moroccan sources say that the men who carried out the attacks had no criminal records and were unknown to Moroccan authorities. (This information is obviously self-serving from the standpoint of Moroccan intelligence, but there is no reason, at this point, to assume it is untrue.) Nine more individuals are wanted in connection with the bombings; two of the nine were arrested earlier today.
