More austerity protests in Rabat, Morocco

Moroccan police used batons to disperse a protest by more than a thousand unemployed graduates in central Rabat on Wednesday. This was the second protest this week over austerity measures. The financial situation of the country is precarious since the economy has been hit by the Euro zone's financial crisis. Travellers should exercise caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without notice.
