The case has been published in several websites and newspapers, including Suapress and Daily Morocco, which speak about the throwing of a "sound bomb" or a "deafening grenade" and quote the Imam of the Mosque, Sheikh Abdul Hamid.
“A car stopped in front of the mosque and a deafening bomb was thrown, we saw a burst and then we heard the sound of an explosion outside the mosque before the vehicle burst”, said the imam to Daily Morocco.
"We have no idea of the attacker or the attackers, and we do not have a surveillance camera because we have not yet received an authorization in this sense,” the imam added.
