Rabat - Morocco’s Minister of Communications Mustapha El-Khalfi has said that the statement made by the Algerian Prime Minister implicating Morocco in the bloody events of Ghardaia this month is “unacceptable.”

Algerian security forces take part in an operation to secure the Algerian city of Ghardaia on March 18, 2014 following sectarian violence. Clashes broke out last week between young Mozabites, indigenous Berbers belonging to the Ibadi Muslim sect, and members of the Arab Chaamba community, leaving three people dead and some 200 wounded.
