Morocco beheading – ISIS butchers could face death penalty as outraged public demands fanatics are executed

THE savage murders of two Scandinavian tourists has led some Moroccans to call for the ISIS fanatics responsible to be EXECUTED.

Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, from Denmark, and Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway, were butchered on a hiking holiday near Mount Toubkal by a group of brainwashed killers.

Their bodies were discovered by French hikers on Monday morning while the four extremists suspects have been arrested.

A petition has been created at Change.org calling for the men responsible to be executed – as the brutal killings have sent shockwaves through Morocco.

While the North African country has not abolished capital punishment, the government has not carried out at an execution since 1993.

The petition says: “The death penalty is undoubtedly the right solution to this horrible crime, as a Moroccan, I request the application of Articles 393, 399 of the Moroccan Penal Code.”

The two articles the petition references relate to premeditated murder and a crime involving torture being punishable by death under Moroccan law.

And while it only has around 300 signatures, more people are calling for the execution of the suspects on Twitter.

One social media user wrote: “This heinous barbaric act does not represent Morocco or Moroccans.

“We are warm and loving people. These terrorists are not even humans and I hope they will be sentenced to death penalty.

“We are very sorry for the families and countries of the victims.”

Another posted: “The killing of an innocent tourists in Morocco is beyond EVIL!

“These terrorists should not get the death penalty only – but should be tortured to death a slow death what they deserve.

“I can’t believe they are human! And can’t believe humans can turn evil this way!”

A third added: “This has nothing to do with Islam. Calling those b******s devout Muslims is unacceptable.

“People in Morocco are shocked and demand death penalty. This is the reality.”

From 1956 and 1993, Morocco killed 198 people to death including those involved in a military coup in 1972.

Meanwhile, chilling footage circulating on social media shows a woman screaming while a man cuts her neck with what appears to be a kitchen knife.

During the video, the perpetrators cry out: “It’s Allah’s will” and are heard saying: “This is revenge for our brothers in Hajine in Syria. These are your heads, enemy of God.”

A separate clip published on Twitter on Thursday appeared to show four men suspected of murdering the tourists pledging their alliance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

One of them holds a knife as they sit in front of a black and white flag.

While the video has been verified by intelligence analysts, official authorities are yet to comment on the footage.
