Moroccan Irregular Residents in Algeria temporarily blocked at borders

Thursday, 02 October 2014

Dozens of Moroccan nationals, irregular residents in Algeria, have been temporarily denied access to national soil, said Thursday the ministry of the Interior.

The Moroccan citizens, who “probably wish to celebrate Eid El Adha with their families in Morocco tried to walk to cross the Moroccan-Algerian borders”, the same source estimated in a statement. “The important flow of these people who wanted to illegally cross the Moroccan-Algerian borders required strict control in order to prevent malevolent intruders from entering national soil”, the ministry added in a statement.

Because of security measures put in place by the Moroccan authorities “in response to plausible terrorist threats against Morocco, control measures in all access points throughout the Kingdom have been particularly strengthened”, the same source concluded.
