Dozens die in Morocco minaret collapse

At least 36 people were killed in Morocco when a minaret collapsed at a mosque in the central town of Meknes, officials say.

More than 60 people were injured in the accident at the Berdieyinne mosque in Meknes' old city during Friday prayers, according to Moroccan state television.

The TV report said that the collapse came after heavy rains which lashed the region for several days.

The minaret is said to have been four centuries old.

Many people are said to be buried under the rubble of the collapsed tower.

A resident, Khaled Rahmouni, told Reuters news agency that about 300 worshippers had gathered inside the mosque for Friday afternoon prayers.

"When the imam was about to start his sermon, the minaret fell down," he said.

Moroccan television added that the interior and religious affairs ministers had visited the site to supervise rescue operations.

The officials visited the injured, who had been taken to hospitals in Meknes and the nearby city of Fez.

Observers say that while neglected buildings in the old quarters of Morocco's cities collapse fairly often, the fall of a minaret is rare.

King Mohammed VI ordered the minaret to be rebuilt.

Meknes is on Unesco's world heritage list.

Several days of heavy rain had weakened the centuries-old minaret (on the left) in the historic centre of Meknes, officials said.

the things is no preventive maintenance are done on religious building like mosques and churchies, the reason to that is most of worshippers consider the places sacred, its like they think god will always protect those building while i think its asking too much of him, to touch mosque or chuch for repair is considered blasphemy while i would like to inform all of you most of our churches and mosque if properly examined will be labelled condemed buildings, we are preraring our own death for the sake of mainting places to be sacred.
