Rabat – A teenager has been arrested in southern Agadir after a picture showing him with another female teenager smooching was widely circulated online.
The father of the girl shown in the picture filed a complaint against the boy who was later arrested by local authorities, Alyaoum 24 news website reported.
According to the same source, the teenager admitted having kissed the girl, adding that he did not intend to tarnish her reputation. He told the authorities in Ait Melloul, a city in the outskirts of Agadir, that it was another person who took the picture and vowed earlier to publish indecent pictures of other school girls.
Alyaoum24 added that the third person who took the picture that sparked uproar in the city has also been arrested. The police are said to have confiscated his computer in which they found pornographic material.
In 2013, three teenagers from the north eastern city of Nador were also arrested for “violating public decency” by posting a photo of them kissing. They were held at a juvenile center before they were released.
