    A blast has rocked the main square in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh, killing at least 10 people, officials say.

    Some reports say the blast, which tore through a busy cafe on Djemaa el-Fna square, was caused by a gas cylinder.

    Marrakesh is a popular tourist destination, and was bustling with activity at the time of the blast.

    It comes after two months of protests demanding that King Mohammed VI give up some of his powers, amid a tide of uprisings across the region

    Updates: Officials now say the blast was a 'criminal act'.

    Officials say they believe the blast, which tore through the Argana cafe in Djemaa el-Fna square, a popular tourist destination, was "criminal".

    Initial reports had pointed to an accidental gas explosion.

    Morocco has seen two months of protests demanding that King Mohammed VI give up some of his powers, amid a tide of uprisings across the region.

    Shambulio la bomu katika eneo kuu la wazi kwenye mji wa Marrakesh nchini Morocco umeua takriban watu 14 na kujeruhi 20, wengine wakiwa raia wa kigeni.

    Mlipuko huo ulipasua mgahawa wa Argana kwenye eneo la wazi la Djemaa el-Fna, eneo maarufu kwa watalii.
    Wizara ya mambo ya ndani imesema ushahidi kwa sasa unaelekea kuwa ni shambulio la bomu baada ya ripoti za awali kupendekeza kuwa ni mlipuko wa gesi.

    Morocco imeshuhudia maandamano kwa muda wa miezi miwili dhidi ya mfalme Mohammed V1 huku kukiwa na wimbi la ghasia katika eneo hilo.

    Shambulio la mwisho la kigaidi Morocco lilitokea mwaka 2003 katika mji wa Casablanca- watu 45, wakiwemo watu waliojitoa mhanga, waliuawa.
