Awful. Send Morocco all of the help and assistance they need. RIP

Prime Minister Aziz Akhannouch told local media the government would compensate victims, but gave few details.

How do you compensate a mother for the loss of her 7yo child?

Morocco has accepted offers of aid from Spain and Britain, which both sent search-and-rescue specialists with sniffer dogs, and from the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. State TV said the government might accept relief offers from other countries later.

Morocco is refusing aid offers from Algeria. Turkey, the US and Taiwan among other nations have offered specialized search and rescue teams but are waiting for the Moroccan government to accept their offers of help.

It is hard to take in this kind of tragedy, so many dead, thousands homeless, so many live completely ruined in just a few seconds. It is hard to comprehend. But why is their government refusing any aid, what ever your political or religious beliefs, accepting aid from other countries from around the world can only be beneficial.

Also on top of this disaster, there was another one in Libya yesterday, authorities in eastern Libya said at least 2,000 people were killed and thousands more were missing after a massive flood ripped through the city of Derna following a heavy storm and rain. These disasters are becoming so common place now around different parts the world, we have to ask ourselves, what the hell is happening!!!!
