In a statement, Morocco's Interior Ministry said 76 civilians were injured along with 140 Moroccan security officers. The Moroccan Human Rights Association reported 27 dead, but the figure could not immediately be confirmed. "They were left there without help for hours, which increased the number of deaths," the human rights group said on Twitter. In another of the association's videos, a Moroccan security officer appeared to use a baton to strike a person lying on the ground. "The human rights of migrants and refugees must be respected and situations like that seen cannot happen again."
