Morocco bomb was al-Qaida 'style'

    Al-Qaida is thought to have been behind the bomb in Morocco that left a former JC writer, a Jewish couple from Shanghai, and 13 others dead.

    Morocco's Interior Minister said Thursday’s bomb, believed to have been exploded remotely, reminded "of the style used generally by al-Qaeda."

    A video featuring a threat to Morocco posted before the blast has also been attributed to the group al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).

    Mr Moss, a father-of-two from north London, was following in the footsteps of many visitors to Morocco by eating at the Argana cafe in Marrakesh’s historic Djemma El Fna Square.

    A travel writer, comedian and novelist, Mr Moss was for many years a contributor to the JC’s travel and books sections. A supporter of Maccabi GB, Mr Moss was the coach of the Sunday Jewish football league’s FC Team and also volunteered for Jewish mental health charity JAMI.

    Ten years ago Mr Moss was across the street when the Sbarro pizzeria in Jerusalem was attacked by a suicide bomber, killing 16 people.
