There were huge crowds on Djemaa el-Fna awaiting the arrival of the monarch, waving flags and pictures in support of his visit.

'This was a very important visit for the people of Marrakech', said Kerstin Brand who lives in the city.

'After the King left, all the barriers were taken away and the stalls came out on Djemaa el-Fna, so life returns to normal', continued Kerstin.

After viewing the Argana on the square and talking to the forensics team, HM the King visited the injured at the Ibn Tofail Hospital in Marrakech.
