A Moroccan court on Friday jailed a teenager for three months for threatening to kill US President Barack Obamaon Twitter, judicial sources said.

The 17-year-old identified as Soufiane I, pleaded guilty at a Casablanca court to “electronic crimes” and “calling for violence via electronic media”, after posting the death threat last year.

“I will kill your president and everyone in his company. It’s what I’m going to do when I arrive in the United States next month,” the youth wrote on his Twitter feed.

The teenager was arrested around two months ago in Casablanca.
