Sevilla Attack Foiled?

AND Sevilla Semana Santa 01Moroccan police arrested one of their citizens, resident of Sevilla, accused of planning a suicide, bomb attack against Sevilla during Semana Santa.

Consequently, the Anti-Terrorist Department belonging to the Spanish Policía Nacional consider that such an attack on the city has been averted.

The 23-year-old suspect, Zouhair El Bouhdidi, who was arrested in Rabat but is studying at the University of Sevilla, has been a resident of Sevilla since 2016.

According to the Moroccan police, his plans were well advanced and had returned to Morocco to say farewell to his family. This he admitted to Moroccan police, although we do not know ‘under what circumstances.’

However, subsequent searches of the suspect’s residence in Sevilla failed to turn up any discriminating evidence.
