Hundreds of demonstrators have blocked the main streets in the centre of the Moroccan capital, Rabat, in support of the protests taking place in the north of the country against rising youth unemployment in the country.

Protesters chanted against the government calling it "corrupt" and a "failure".

Tension has been high since Friday when violence broke out in the town of al-Hoceima as police tried
to arrest well-known activist Nasser Zefzafi.

Long-standing grievances were exacerbated in October last year when a fish seller in al-Hoceima was killed as he tried to prevent local officials destroying his stock.
