Morocco's justice minister has admitted to 'several cases of abuse' by police at recent protests, a local newspaper reported, saying the government would review how such protests were dealt with by them. 'There have been several cases of abuse by the police forces of citizens' protesting,' Mustapha Ramid was quoted as saying by the Arabic-language daily Akhbar al-Youm. 'The government must review the way in which the security forces intervene, to ensure that it conforms with the law,' he added, referring to peaceful protests violently dispersed by baton-wielding riot police in recent days.
