The bus belonged to M’dina Bus, a company Moroccans say should be replaced.
The company came under fire in November, after a video spread online showing one of its bus drivers using an umbrella to take shelter from rain leaking through the roof of the bus.
The driver was reportedly fired because the video went viral, adding to the anger of many Moroccans on social media condemning the poor conditions of the company’s buses.
