SKHIRAT, Morocco (Reuters) - Morocco has arrested three Saudi members of al Qaeda who had been preparing to carry out ''terrorist attacks'' on U.S. and British ships in the Straits of Gibraltar, a senior government official said on Monday.
``Morocco's security services have dismantled a network of al Qaeda who planned terrorist attacks on U.S. and British warships crossing the Straits of Gibraltar... It was a successful operation,'' the official, who declined to be named, told Reuters.
The official said the three men, holding Saudi passports, were arrested in Morocco last month, but he declined to identify them.
The three were being held in custody in Casablanca prior to their interrogation by the prosecutor, the official said.
