Authorities in Morocco are starting to identify the people killed in yesterday's explosion in a Marrakesh cafe. Interpol says it's offered to help investigate the suspected suicide bombing at the Argana Cafe in the old city section of Marrakesh. CNN says the old city has been declared a World Heritage site by the UN.

AP says at least 15 people were killed, and adds some victims were from Canada, France, the Netherlands and Morocco. Several more people are hurt.
