The Itamaraty stated, in a statement issued this Saturday (9), that “there is, to date, no news of Brazilians being killed or injured” in an earthquake that hit Morocco. The ministry expressed regret and condolences to the families of the victims.

“The Brazilian government learned, with consternation, of the earthquake that occurred near Marrakesh, in Morocco. So far, there is no news of Brazilians being killed or injured,” he says.

“By expressing regret and condolences to the families of the victims, the Brazilian government also conveys its solidarity to the government and people of Morocco”, he adds.

The number of deaths caused by the earthquake that hit central Morocco increased to 1,037, as reported by state television this Saturday (9), citing the country’s Ministry of the Interior.

The country was hit by 6.8 magnitude tremors on Friday night (8), as reported by the United States Geological Survey. The shock caused panic among residents and tourists in Marrakech.

That earthquake was the strongest to hit that part of the North African country in more than 100 years, according to the US Geological Survey.
