Morocco earthquake survivors desperate for help – BBC News

Life-saving work is taking place against all odds in Morocco as search and rescue operations continue.

The epicentre of the tremor was in the High Atlas Mountains, 71km (44 miles) from Marrakesh, and many of the worst affected areas are remote villages and towns.

Since the earthquake struck, there’s been a growing spotlight on the deployment of international search teams.

On Sunday, amid local criticism of a patchy and slow response by authorities, Morocco’s government sparked controversy by deciding to only accept help from four countries.

It defended the move, saying “a lack of co-ordination could be counterproductive”.
