The deadliest earthquake to strike Morocco in 60 years

The devastating 6.8 magnitude earthquake hit Morocco overnight and the death toll has passed 2,600 people.

Many of the dead are in remote villages in the High Atlas mountains and the scale of the destruction there is still emerging. Residents are using whatever equipment they can find as they struggle to reach their neighbors under the rubble. Blocked roads are preventing ambulances from reaching the wounded. Officials are scrambling to clear debris, but the rescue and relief efforts are difficult amid the mountainous terrain, risk of landslides, and large distances.

Homes and other buildings have collapsed, including in the ancient UNESCO World Heritage Site in the historic city of Marrakech. Aftershocks have left families too frightened to seek shelter, with exhausted survivors forced to sleep in the streets.
