Morocco Holidays Thrown into Doubt by Protests: "The unease has thrown holidays to the whole region in doubt with some of the world’s most popular tourism spots affected. First it was the Mediterranean coast of Tunisia, then Cairo, Egypt’s capital and gateway to the Pyramids of Giza.

Over the weekend a number of largely peaceful protests took place but similar protests in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya quickly turned violent.

While the Tunisians and the Egyptians were successful in forcing out their leaders, the Libyan dictator Colonel Gaddafi shows no signs of giving up just yet and has been willing to massacre his own people.

Most of the protestors are confined to the Moroccan capital of Rabat although there are also a number of protests in Casablanca, that romantic North African city made famous by the movie of the same name. Around ten thousand Rabat protestors marched through the streets chanting ‘down with autocracy’.

There are also thought to be smaller protests taking place in popular tourist destinations such as Tangiers, Fez and Marrakech with a few violent clashes with police having been reported. Tour operators are currently monitoring the situation, as should car hire Morocco customers.

But commentators do not believe that Morocco will witness a major uprising on the scale of what happened in Egypt."
