The horrible news was reported that two young girls were murdered while traveling abroad. Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, and Maren Ueland, 28, were killed while backpacking through Morocco. 

The two Scandinavian girls were hiking and camping in the Atlas mountains when they were brutally murdered. The two girls were studying at Norwegian University to become outdoor guides, and this experience was planned to give them real-world experience in their field of interest.

Now, three suspects have been named and many signs point to terrorism. 

According to Fox, the killers filmed the brutal attack. Sadly, one of the girls was beheaded while the other had a throat wound.

As of Thursday afternoon, no terror group has claimed responsibility for the attack. However, according to Daily Mail, the suspects may have pledged allegiance to ISIS.

The police were alerted to the three suspects when a witness saw them carrying knives while buying a pack of water. Now, the suspects are being held for questioning.

Please be praying for Louisa's and Maren's families and friends during this horrible time. The grief that they are experiencing is unimaginable. Share your prayers here. In other recent news, a type of Ibuprofen was just recalled. If you have it, throw it out!
