    Unfortunately this can happen anywhere in the world! There are fanatics of all colour and creeds.

    The report suggests that the attack was carried out by psychotic druggies rather than terrorists.

    According to the map further down Spain & France are a higher risk than Morocco!

    If you actually read the article (and remember newspapers need stories to sell themselves) the two were drugged up and it was locals who detained them. As above this kind of thing happens everywhere - guns in USA, does that stop people going there?

    Agree Fez has been known for a while to be a bit of a black spot, which is why I've always suggested people avoid it. But we're still going.

    The authorities and people of these countries that rely massively on tourism will have to sort security out if they wish the industry to survive in their country. Turkish resorts are on their knees after the killings, Egypt next and anywhere else where life is cheap.
    It has been said today that security at the Airport in Egypt was dire. Sometimes bags were checked but often not. I bet that doesn't happen again but it's too late now the terrorists have won and we are terrorised. The locals in Fez seem to realise which side their breads buttered on and caught the lads and handed them in. Well done (y)

    What makes you think that we don't have our own drugged up maniacs?

    We do and knife crime, but foreign tourists haven't to my knowledge been attacked with knives in broad daylight while on a shopping trip in any town/city centre.
