Deadly Blast At Moroccan Cafe

Apr 28, 2011

An explosion in Morocco's southern city of Marrakesh has killed several people, according to Reuters. Morocco's official news agency says several people were killed and injured inside a cafe in the city but didn't offer a cause of the blast.

Al-Jazeera reports at least 10 people died when gas canisters inside the cafe exploded. It was located in a busy square, and the AP cites witnesses who said there was panic and chaos in the streets as debris rained down from the sky. The front wall of the cafe is apparently missing.
