A Moroccan court on Thursday condemned three suspected jihadists to death for the murder of two Scandinavian women beheaded while on a hiking trip in Morocco.

Suspected ringleader Abdessamad Ejjoud and two companions received the maximum penalty over the December killings of Danish tourist Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, and 28-year-old Norwegian Maren Ueland.
