Morocco earthquake death toll

The Morocco earthquake death toll has reached 2,901 with 5,530 injuries. According to XinhuaNet, the quake struck at a depth of 18.5 km. It left villages like Ouirgane in shambles, with entire houses flattened and rescue teams employing excavators to clear the debris.

Amid this catastrophe, Morocco has accepted aid offers from several countries, including Spain, Britain, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar. In contrast, other offers of assistance remain pending approval.

The IFRC* appealed for 100 million Swiss francs (112 million U.S. dollars) to support the victims. The immediate focus is securing water, sanitation, and shelter to prevent a second wave of disaster, according to Caroline Holt, global director of operations at IFRC.
