Reconstruction for quake-hit Morocco 'will take years', humanitarian aid will require 'int'l effort'


The earthquake that struck Morocco late Friday has killed more than 2,100 people, with the death toll expected to increase as rescuers reach hard-hit remote mountain areas. Rescuers are facing a growing race against time to dig any survivors from the rubble of devastated villages in the Atlas mountains. For more on the deadly 6.8-magnitude quake that struck southwest of the city of Marrakesh, FRANCE 24's Monte Francis is joined by Dr. William Lawrence, former US Diplomat, Professor of Political Science and International Affairs at American University's School of International Service in Washington DC and former North Africa Project Director at International Crisis Group.
