RABAT, Morocco — Moroccan authorities have arrested four people suspected of planning attacks in the city of Fez, a tourist destination and spiritual center.

Morocco’s interior ministry said in a statement Wednesday that a military uniform, knives and documents calling for jihad were seized during the operation.

This is the second suspected extremist cell dismantled in less than a month in Fez after 11 people were arrested on Oct. 14.
