RABAT (Reuters) - Moroccan police have arrested four people suspected of belonging to a militant cell linked to Islamic State, the interior ministry said on Monday.

The cell, the latest of a series of Islamist militant groups the authorities say they have uncovered, had been active in the central city of Beni Mellal, the ministry said in a statement.
