The blast was in a restaurant overlooking the Jema el-Fnaa square in Marrakesh, a hugely popular tourist site. The dead, at least 15 according to reported, are believed to include French, Dutch, British, Canadian and Israeli nationals.

With al Qaeda’s north African branch thought to be behind the attack, hundreds of people filled the Jema el-Fnaa square yesterday to demonstrate against terrorism.
