Injured Swiss return home from Morocco

Two Swiss tourists injured in Thursday's bomb attack on a cafe in Marrakech have arrived in Zurich.

An air ambulance sent to Morocco to collect the two seriously injured women touched down late on Friday night.

A spokesperson for the Swiss Air Rescue Service (Rega), which operated the air ambulance flight, said the two women were immediately transferred to hospital. 

In all 16 people were killed and more than 20 were wounded in the attack in Marrakech’s Djemma el-Fna square.

A third Swiss and a Portuguese national from Ticino, who were travelling with the two injured women, are still missing after the attack, the foreign ministry said.

Police have yet to establish who was responsible for the attack, the deadliest in Morocco in eight years.
