Al-Qaeda says Moroccan Iraq hostages 'referred to trial'
DUBAI, Nov 1, 2005 (AFP) - Loyalists of Al-Qaeda's Iraq frontman Abu Musab
al-Zarqawi said Tuesday in an Internet statement that they had finished
their investigation of two Moroccan hostages and had "referred them to
trial."

"After the completion of the investigation with the two detainees from the
Moroccan embassy, their case was referred to trial," said the terse
statement signed in the name Abu Maisara al-Iraqi.

Scanned copies of the pair's passports and identification cards were
attached to the statement.

Embassy driver Abdelrahim Boualam and agent Abdelkrim El Mouhafidi went
missing on October 20 while travelling on the treacherous highway between
Amman and Iraqi capital.

Zarqawi's group first claimed responsibility for kidnapping the Moroccans on
Wednesday.

The group, considered the bloodiest of the insurgent organizations in Iraq,
has already claimed responsibility for kidnapping and executing two Algerian
diplomats and Egypt's head of mission in Baghdad, Ihab al-Sherif, all
abducted in July.
