MOROCCO'S security forces were on maximum alert today after "established terror threats" by what experts said was the regional branch of al-Qaeda.

Interior Minister Chakib Benmoussa informed the country's security experts yesterday of a “current threat” against the northwest African country.

The alert demands the full mobilisation of the security services and the “redoubling of vigilance”, the interior ministry said after the meeting.

Morocco has been on edge since a series of suicide bomb attacks earlier this year which killed a police officer and injured 45 people.
