Historic Marrakesh mosque damaged

Videos of dust posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, surrounding the historic Kutubiyya mosque in the city of Marrakech have raised fears it could collapse.

A deadly earthquake in Morocco has damaged buildings in Marrakech's Old City and parts of its historic walls.

Parts of a minaret of a small mosque collapsed in the famous Jemaa el-Fnaa square, at the heart of Marrakech's Old City, causing injuries and damage to property nearby. 

However, the famous Kutubiyya mosque, seen below, which overlooks Jemaa el-Fnaa, remained intact following the earthquake. But there are concerns about its structural integrity.
