RABAT, Morocco (AP) -- Moroccan police have arrested three suspects accused of planning to carry out attacks on the security of the state.

The MAP news agency, citing a statement from the interior ministry, says one of the suspects is a Moroccan with Danish nationality who traveled to Morocco from Europe.

The suspects are accused of belonging to an unauthorized organization, the Party for Moroccan Islamic Liberation. Authorities believe the group receives financial support from activists resident in Europe.
