Police break up anti-king protest

Thursday 23 August 2012

Moroccan police violently broke up a protest demanding more political freedoms and denouncing an annual ceremony honouring King Mohamed VI yesterday.

Dozens of activists gathered in front of parliament in the capital Rabat to show their disapproval of the ceremony, which they described as “humiliating and medieval” but police blocked the unauthorised gathering, beating protesters with batons.

Officials from around the country turn up in Rabat every year to prostrate themselves before the king in a show of loyalty to the monarchy.
