(MENAFN)Morocco's king stopped the working of several ministers and top officials on Tuesday for after they failed to improve the economic shaky situation in a region full of protests, a statement said.
Protests broke out in the Rif region around the northern city of Al Hoceima last October, after the death of a fishmonger whom the police seized his products.
The man was crushed to death in a garbage truck during a confrontation with police. It wrathfully became a symbol of corruption and official abuse.
Protests also continued there this year because of economic underdevelopment.
