RABAT - Morocco's Interior Ministry has dismantled a cell recruiting Moroccans to fight for extremist groups in Iraq and Syria, the ministry said on Wednesday.


Six men were arrested in the central city of Fez, including one who had previously been detained under the terrorism law.


The statement warned that many of the fighters hope to return after being trained, to carry out attacks in Morocco.
