A day in the ruins of the earthquake in Morocco – podcast | News


On Friday evening, the Moroccan High Atlas Mountains were hit by a 6.8 magnitude earthquake and tremors were felt in several regions of the country, from Marrakech to Casablanca. Since then, the death toll has exceeded 2,800 people.

Pierre Beaumontsenior journalist at the Guardian’s global development desk, said Michel Safi about his stay in the villages of the High Atlas mountains. Peter meets with communities who have been left without support since the earthquake.

“Everything they did, they did for themselves,” he said. “They dug up their survivors and their dead.”

Ibtissam Bouseta was in Marrakech when the earthquake occurred. She works for the Moroccan Association for Biodiversity and Livelihoods, which is helping with relief efforts. She tells Michael how difficult it is to reach some of the affected communities and why they desperately need shelter and more support.
