According to Taib Cherqaoui, Morocco's interior minister, the Marrakech bombing has all the hallmarks of an al-Qaida attack
16 people have died and 25 people were injured, 14 of them hospitalized.
The bomb was triggered remotely and packed with nails. Some were found at the scene of the blast, others in the bodies of victims, Cherqaoui said.
"The manner reminds us of the style used generally by al-Qaida," Cherqaoui said. "And this leads us to think that there is a possibility of more dangers to come."
No one has claimed responsibility for Morocco's deadliest attack since 2003.
