Morocco protests: Five burned bodies found - minister:


Five burned bodies have been found in a bank which was set on fire following anti-government protests in Morocco on Sunday, the interior minister has said.

Taib Cherkaoui said the bodies were discovered in the northern town of al-Hoceima.

He said the protests in al-Hoceima and other towns and cities were peaceful, but added that acts of vandalism and looting took place after the rallies.

The protesters demanded that King Mohammed VI give up some of his power.

So far there has been no independent confirmation of the deaths in al-Hoceima, and it is not clear how the five may have died.
