Marrakech – HM King Mohammed VI, accompanied by Prince Moulay Ismail, visited, on Saturday afternoon, the scene of the attack that took place in Argana café at Jamaa El Fna square in Marrakech, killing 16 people and injuring 25 others.

– The Sovereign’s visit shows his solidarity with the families of the victims in these painful circumstances.

HM the King had vigorously denounced this criminal attack that caused the death of several innocent victims, and strongly condemned this act, which targeted the city of Marrakech, a symbol of coexistence between religions and civilizations.

HM the King had said that “such a cowardly criminal aggression, contrary to the noble human values of respect for the sacred right to life, tolerance, freedom and peace, will not affect the determination of Morocco, King and people, to maintain the stability of this country, a peaceful crossroads of all peoples and cultures.”

“This will only strengthen the willingness of Moroccans against all those who want to undermine the model they opted for to promote democratic progress and cooperate with the international community to fight all forms of crime, aggression and terrorism,” the Sovereign had stressed.
