A 6.8-magnitude quake, according to the US Geological Survey - the strongest in the North African country's history - struck Friday at 11:11 pm in an area of the Atlas mountain range 72 kilometres southwest of the city of Marrakesh.

Volunteers have been visiting villages devastated by a powerful earthquake to distribute basic necessities to the survivors.
