Four suspects have been taken into custody by Moroccan authorities in connection with the murders of two Scandinavian women whose bodies were discovered earlier this week in the country’s High Atlas Mountains.

A video purportedly showing the beheading of one of the victims has been authenticated by Danish intelligence, who confirmed Wednesday that the killings can be connected to ISIS.

On Monday, 24-year-old Dane Louisa Jespersen and 28-year-old Norwegian Maren Ueland were found dead by fellow hikers in an isolated area six miles from the tourist village of Imlil. The women’s bodies had been mutilated, and investigators say they were both sexually assaulted.

Earlier reports said that detectives believed the attacks were sexually motivated, but authorities now say Islamic extremism is behind the gruesome murders. According to the Daily Mail, the Danish intelligence service has confirmed that a video of the decapitation — which appears to be committed with a kitchen knife while the victim was still alive — is genuine.

Men can be heard in the clip reportedly calling the women “enemies of God,” referring to their deaths as “Allah’s will,” and saying “this is for Syria.”

The Danish intelligence service issued a statement saying, “The video and preliminary investigation according to Moroccan authorities indicate that the killings may be related to the terrorist organization Islamic State. This is a case of an unusually bestial killing of two totally innocent young women.”

The lead suspect in the murders was arrested Monday, and another three were apprehended while trying to flee on a bus Thursday. They were discovered trying to smuggle large knives underneath their seats, which are believed to be the murder weapons.

Jespersen and Ueland were students at the University of Southeastern Norway, pursuing degrees in “outdoor life, culture and eco philosophy.” According to the institution, the women’s trip to Morocco was not part of their studies, the Daily Beast reported.

The school issued a statement saying, “What we know is that they were on a month-long, private holiday in Morocco. Our thoughts go to the families.”

    I hope they cut off their penis, shove it up their ass then hang them and burn the bodies.

    What happen to these two non-Muslim women was horrific! My heart breaks for them and their families and friends. BUT, people have got to stop being naive. Why on God’s green earth would you go to a Muslim country knowing there are terrorists all over the place. And why without male escorts in remote areas??? I was stationed in Turkey 30 plus years ago. Even back then we were told not to go off base without males. It is essential that situational awareness start being taught in the West. Without such, you naively become a target.

      I’m afraid you are right and sad that most people in the U.S, are so deluded to thinak this won’t happen here more often as the Muslim majority grows. If they follow Sharia Law they aren’t concerned about U.S. Law and will do what their religion allows – all in the namw of Allah!

    This is what to expect if the USA doesn’t close down its borders and stop letting everything on two legs get in. Those people are pure D evil and no punishment is too harsh. They will probably be placed on “house arrest” and told not to leave the country. Yeah…right..,.
    AMERICA… BEWARE FOR THEY ARE HERE AND WILL KILL YOU, YOUR CHILDREN AND ALL YOUR FRIENDS. BUILD THE F#$KING WALL OR PUT ARMED SOLDIERS ON THE BORDER WITH ORDERS TO SHOOT TO KILL…..
