Morocco arrests 11 over fish seller’s death
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.
