4 Moroccans killed amid heavy rainfall

RABAT – Four people have been killed when their homes collapsed due to heavy rainfall in Morocco.

Heavy rainfall caused a house in the central city of Safi to collapse, leaving at least two people dead, official sources said.

And on Sunday, three houses collapsed in Casablanca's Old City, killing two and injuring five, municipal official Hafiz al-Baqali said.

Heavy rainfall this year in several parts of the North African country – especially in the south – has caused hundreds of deaths, along with substantial losses in terms of destroyed infrastructure and housing.
