Alleged ringleader of terror cell admits killing Scandinavian touristsThe alleged leader of a jihadist cell accused of killing two Scandinavian hikers in Morocco has admitted he beheaded one of the women, saying the murders were carried out in the name of ISIS.
Danish student Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, and 28-year-old Norwegian Maren Ueland had their throats slit while camping in the Atlas mountains in December.
'I beheaded one of them... I regret it,' former street vendor Abdessamad Ejjoud, 25, told the court, blaming co-defendant Younes Ouaziyad for killing the other hiker.
'We loved ISIS and we prayed to God for it,' he said.
