More than 200 relief workers from the Moroccan Red Crescent are at the scene of a powerful earthquake that struck the Mediterranean coast of Morocco on February 24. Hundreds are feared dead as initial reports say that several villages south of the resort town of Al Hoceima were badly damaged. The Red Crescent, which is closely coordinating relief efforts with the authorities, has dispatched 1,500 blankets, 100 tents, 150 mattresses, 200 jerry cans and tarpaulins to the area.
