Morocco ar­rests 11 over fish seller’s death

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Morocco ar­rested 11 peo­ple sus­pected of in­vol­un­tary man­slaugh­ter over the death of a fish seller whose crush­ing in a rub­bish truck sparked wide­spread demon­stra­tions. Mouhcine Fikri, 31, was ac­ci­den­tally killed in Al-Ho­ceima as he tried to protest against the seizure and de­struc­tion of sword­fish. His death has trig­gered out­rage in other cities in­clud­ing the cap­i­tal Ra­bat. It was the self-im­mo­la­tion of a street ven­dor in Tu­nisia in late 2010 in protest at po­lice ha­rass­ment that sparked Tu­nisia’s rev­o­lu­tion and the Arab Spring up­ris­ings.
