مقتل المئات جراء زلزال في المغرب

By Jordi Bou

September 9, 2023 - زلزال قوي بقوة 6.8 درجات ضرب وسط المغرب، مما أسفر عن مقتل أكثر من ألف شخص وتدمير المباني في أعنف زلزال يضرب البلاد منذ عقود.

The epicentre was in the High Atlas Mountains, 71km south-west of Marrakesh, at a depth of 18.5km, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

In Marrakech, some buildings in the old city, a Unesco World Heritage site, have been damaged or destroyed.

Several world leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron and Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, offered assistance to Morocco.
