The Moroccan security services busted on Friday a six-member terror cell in the central city of Beni Mellal, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.
The suspects are linked to the Islamic State (IS) group and were preparing terrorist attacks in the kingdom, according to the ministry.
Electronic devices, books and manuscripts promoting IS extremist ideology, as well as bladed weapons were seized during the operation, the statement said.
Initial investigations revealed the suspects, aged between 24 and 37, had recruited several young people to carry out attacks.
More than 57 terrorist cells have been dismantled since 2015, according to the ministry.
