Officials in Morocco say they've arrested six people suspected of planning car bomb attacks on foreign and domestic targets.The country's interior ministry said all of the people arrested are explosives experts and were part of a wider terror network.

Morocco's government has not said where the suspects were taken into custody or even exactly when the arrests happened.

Morocco is a popular tourist destination and ally in the U.S. effort to fight terrorism. The government has regularly rounded up terror suspects since 2003 when attacks in Casablanca killed 45 people.
