BRUSSELS, Dec 1, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Wives of several suspected terrorists held in Belgium are poised to carry out suicide attacks in Morocco, it was reported Thursday.

That claim was made to police by Mohamed Reha, a Belgian of Moroccan ancestry arrested in Morocco earlier this month, Expatica News said.

Reha said he met in Brussels with the wife of a man identified as Rachid Iba who told him of the desire to get involved in terrorist activity.

"She told me that many Muslim women whose husbands were arrested in Belgium would like to become involved in Jihad, the holy war," he said. "She asked me to help them by finding someone to train them and supply them with explosives."

Reha said he promised the woman he would do everything possible to help them succeed.
