Morocco Earthquake Death Toll Rises to 2,500

Morocco Earthquake Death Toll Rises to 2,500


Rescuers today raced against time to find survivors in the rubble more than 48 hours after Morocco’s deadliest earthquake in over six decades, with nearly 2,500 killed in a disaster that devastated villages in the High Atlas Mountains.



More than 25 aftershocks have already hit the country since the 6.8 magnitude earthquake.



Some villagers say they are struggling to find enough space to bury their dead as funerals can take place besides rescue work. Others are preparing extra graves ready for more bodies, even as rescue operations continue.
