Al Qa'eda denies blame for Marrakesh attack
NOUAKCHOTT // Al Qa'eda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) denied all responsibility for last month's deadly bomb attack in Marrakesh, Morocco, in a statement put out by a Mauritanian news agency Saturday.
"We deny any link to this explosion and declare we are in no way involved in this operation," said the Friday-dated statement in Arabic carried by the Nouakchott News Agency (ANI).
Moroccan authorities had pointed the finger at AQIM after the blast in a cafe in the popular tourist city which killed 17 people, most of them foreigners, on April 28.
