Morocco's General Directorate for National Security said that a Chinese citizen was arrested after landing at Mohammed V International Airport, in Casablanca, upon arrival from Istanbul.

He "was the subject of a red notice issued by Interpol due to his suspected belonging to an organization on the lists of terrorist organizations," the directorate said.

Moroccan police didn't publicly name the arrested man, but nongovernmental organization Safeguard Defenders identified him as Aishan. The group specializes in cases of people detained by China.

Morocco ratified an extradition treaty with China in 2017, among several such treaties China has made in recent years.
