Morocco: At least 15 killed in a stampede occurred in food supply centre, Morocco. 40 others wounded. The incident occurred in the town of Sidi Boulaalam in Essaouira province. The aid was being handed out by a private local charity. Witnesses told local media that this year's annual food aid distribution at a local market in Sidi Boulaalam, an impoverished town with just over 8,000 inhabitants, attracted a larger crowd than usual.

The cost of the food grains hike due to scarcity of agricultural products here. This scarcity is due to the drought occurred in the summer season, reports said.
