A man who went to a Moroccan internet cafe to surf terrorist websites blew himself up when the owner's son refused him access, Morocco's official MAP news agency reports.

Two men entered the cafe in Casablanca's Sidi Moumen district yesterday at 10pm. According to the Surete Nationale police, they wanted to view terrorist websites, but the firm refusal provoked one of the men to detonate explosives strapped to his body.

The cafe owner's son and two others were "slightly injured" in the blast. The bomber's companion, also slightly injured, fled the scene and was later arrested, MAP said. ®
