Morocco’s King at the site of the Marrakesh-bombing
The chief suspect in the cafe bombing in Morocco that killed 16 people is believed to have disguised himself as a hippie, reports Sky News.
Adel al Othmani reportedly entered the cafe in Marrakesh - Morocco's top tourist destination - heavily disguised and carrying a guitar.
"He walked into the cafe wearing a wig and carrying a guitar and the two bags where he hid the explosive devices," an unnamed source told Reuters news agency.
"He ordered an orange juice before leaving the cafe and behind him the two bags.
"He used a mobile phone to detonate the bombs afterwards."
Three men have been arrested in connection with the blast in bustling Jamaa el-Fna square on April 28, including al Othmani.
According to Morocco's Interior Minister Taieb Cherkao, he had shown "loyalty" to al Qaeda and was previously expelled from Libya and Portugal.
A Briton and eight French tourists were among the 16 killed in the bombing.
It was the deadliest attack in Morocco since 12 suicide bombers killed 33 members of the public in coordinated attacks in Casablanca in 2003.
The atrocity adds to the challenges facing King Mohammed as his previously stable kingdom battles to prevent uprisings similar to those elsewhere in the Arab world.
A series of demonstrations have been held in recent weeks with the protesters demanding regime change and greater democratic freedom.
The government has responded by offering public sector workers a pay rise, reform of the constitution and greater independence for the judiciary.
Protesters have accused it of trying to use the bomb attack to raise fears of instability and dissuade people from taking to the streets.
