From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
5 jobless men set themselves alight
MOROCCO: Five unemployed Moroccan men set themselves on fire in Rabat on Tuesday as part of widespread demonstrations in the kingdom over the lack of jobs, especially for university graduates. Three were taken to hospital with burns.
The men were part of the “unemployed graduates” movement, a loose collection of associations filled with millions of university graduates demanding jobs. The demonstrations are often violently dispersed by police and in some towns and cities have resulted in sustained clashes.
While the official unemployment rate is only 9.1 per cent nationally it rises to around 16 per cent for graduates.
