RABAT (Reuters) - Morocco said on Wednesday that it had arrested 52 suspected militants inspired by Islamic State and that it had foiled several attacks in the North African kingdom by seizing weapons and bomb-making materials.

It is biggest group arrested in years and the latest of a series of cells that the authorities say they have found plotting attacks inside and outside Morocco.
