Human rights appeal over jailed Moroccan journalist

Text size Aa Aa

Human rights activists have called for the immediate release of Ali Anouzla, a Moroccan journalist facing terrorism charges.

He is accused of advocating terrorism after his online news site wrote about an al-Qaeda video criticising the country.

He could face up to 20 years in jail in a case which some fear highlights a rise in restrictions on journalism in Morocco.
