Morocco protests

Major protest today in Al Hoceima on Morocco's Mediterranean coast. This has been developing since last year, but I'm not sure if it has been mentioned here before. See this twitter feed for updates.

Interesting stuff thanks, please keep us updated! If you had time to cobble together a short couple of paragraphs expanding what's going on that would be awesome, then we could turn this into a news live blog which would get a lot more traffic
