Danish security services are analysing a video thought to show the murder of one of two women hikers killed in Morocco by suspected extremists, authorities said Thursday.

The PET intelligence service and police "are analysing the video and cannot currently make any other comment about its authenticity," they said in a statement.

PET had earlier said that a video published online could show the murder of one of the women.

Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, a Danish woman of 24 and a 28-year-old Norwegian, Maren Ueland, were found dead on Monday in the High Atlas mountains where they had been camping.

Moroccan investigators say they have arrested four suspects in a probe into
the murders.

Morocco's central judicial investigations office said it was looking into a possible "terrorist motive".

A man seen in the video is heard railing against the "enemies of Allah".
