A ministry official told him, without explanation, to get out of the car that was taking him, the special correspondent of the French magazine Paris Match and the technical team of the Qatari TV station Al-Jazeera to the festivities.The publishers of Journal hebdomadaire, Média Trust, said on 15 July that Sellmaoui was duly accredited by the ministry and had “not behaved ostentatiously or provocatively or criticised working conditions” for the event. More than 300 local and foreign journalists and photographers covered the marriage.center_img April 15, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara June 8, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say April 28, 2021 Find out more Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa last_img read more
