Moroccan media outlets stated on Sunday that any doubts regarding the affiliation of some Moroccan immigrants to terrorist organizations had delayed the return of some 330 illegal immigrants from Libya to their country.

Xinhua News Agency reported that Moroccan authorities sent an official delegation to verify the identities of the Moroccan migrants held at Libyan detention centers, adding that the process of identification and verification is still ongoing before being repatriated.

It is worth noting that Moroccan authorities returned 439 illegal immigrants from Libya to Morocco in 2017.
