Pals Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, and Maren Ueland, 28, were savagely killed near the village of Imlil, a popular tourist destination with hikers.

The Scandinavian women had been camping near the base of Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa.

One of them was reportedly beheaded, with a sick video of the terror attack being circulated online by ISIS fanatics.

Now Danish police have charged 14 people in the country for sharing the footage via social media.

A police statement said: “The 14 charges highlight the seriousness of sharing the murder video from Morocco.

“But it’s not just punishable, it’s also offensive to both victims and relatives, and it can be a profound and deeply unpleasant experience for both children, young people and adults to see it.”

Louisa, a Danish national, and Maren, from Norway, were killed on December 17 last year.

Their mutilated bodies had been found “broken” by distraught French hikers.

Their killers reportedly formed a makeshift terror cell just days before the attack, with a plot to kill tourists.

Sickeningly, the murder video was even shared to the Facebook page of one the woman’s mum.

Four men have been arrested on suspicion of carrying out the horrifying act.

The brother of one of the suspects, Ouziad Younes, claims he is “impressionable”.
