(MENAFN) Morocco said Wednesday it has broken up a "terrorist cell" linked to Daesh that authorities believe was planning attacks in the north of the country.

A statement from Rabat's interior ministry said three suspects had been detained by police in the northern cities of Oujda, Casablanca and Fez.
