Residents of the Moroccan town of Amizmiz have staged a protest against local authorities due to delays in aid following a deadly earthquake that struck the region in early September. The quake, the worst in more than 60 years, killed nearly 3,000 people and left thousands more injured and homeless. Protesters accuse local authorities of neglect and withholding assistance, including tents, from some of the residents who lost their homes. Despite the withdrawal of the Amizmiz Earthquake Victims’ Co-ordination group, which had organized the protest after authorities promised to address concerns, the demonstration proceeded. Morocco’s King Mohammed VI has pledged $11.6 billion over five years to rebuild affected areas.
