MOROCCO BOMB

Welcome to Morocco.

On 28 April 2011, the Morocco-U.S. Defense Consultative Committee was meeting in Rabat in Morocco. (Morocco-US Defense Consultative Committee meets in Rabat)

On 28 April 2011, Le Figaro reported the deaths of a British national and two French nationals in a bomb attack in Morocco.

The bomb hit the Argana cafe in Jamaa el-Fna square in Marrakesh.

The total number of people killed is reported to be 14.



In 2003, bombers attacked five targets in Casablanca, killing 45 people.

In 2011, "Morocco has seen two months of protests against King Mohammed VI amid a tide of uprisings across the region." (Marrakesh bomb strikes Djemaa el-Fna square)

Morocco is much, much poorer than Egypt.

According to economist Najib Akesbi, "entire sectors" of the economy serve as sources of income for the rich elite.

According to Akesby, King Mohammed VI and his family control most farmland and the main companies in the industrial, services, commercial, distribution and export sectors. (Poverty time bomb ticks in Morocco - Africa - Mail & Guardian Online)

weird video. The camera catches what appears to be a building exploding but zips right past it. You barely catch it and the crowd is unmoved. So is the camera person.

Dear Genie,

I see what you mean. It is strange.

I'm reading through some of the old posts and you've been covering 1-3 stories per day for 4 years.

If you are a sole author I appluad and am In awe of your prolificacy.
