Morocco was the first Arab country and the first African continent to reach the semifinals. The incident occurred two days before the semi-final match against France. Morocco, which has experienced both French and Spanish colonization, is a Muslim Sunni country with about 65% Arab. It is known that the French make up the majority of Morocco’s tourist population.

Meanwhile, this is not the first time a French tourist has been killed in Morocco. In January, a 79-year-old French tourist was stabbed to death in a market in the southern Moroccan city of Tiznit.
