Morocco: M20f Rallies in Rabat

Morocco's February 20 Movement (M20F) rallied in Rabat on Sunday (December 23rd).

"We are here to demand the liberation of Driss Bouterrada and the release of all the political prisoners," Moroccan Association of Human Rights (AMDH) chief Khadija Ryadi told AFP.

While Bouterrada was arrested December 10th on drug trafficking charges, Ryadi claims that he is being prosecuted for his links to the M20F group.
