According to the local daily Corriere del Ticino, the two, a 25-year-old Swiss and a 23-year-old Portuguese resident in Switzerland, were traveling in Morocco with two Swiss women, who were also injured in the attack. The four were from Ticino, southern Switzerland, the paper said.
The newspaper said their bodies will be flown back to Switzerland later this week after a commemorating ceremony planned in Morocco for the 16 people who died in the bomb attack. The two injured women returned to Switzerland by air ambulance on Friday and were immediately hospitalized, the paper said.
