Terrorism in Morocco 2013

Hello! I need the help of someone who understands about terrorism, arabic world, or something like this :p

I'm Brazilian and I have tickets to Marrakesh for tomorrow (19th), but I've been reading that things in Argelia and Mali are problematic due to terrorism right now.

I'd like to know if there are any risks on going to Morocco now. It seems that Morocco has supported the action anti-terrorist and I'm afraid it might provoque reactions.

Can someone help me? Thank you very very much.

We are in Morocco now, since Jan. 8 and it is very safe and quiet. Come and have a good time. It's a wonderful country with friendly people.

Morocco is Morocco and Mali is Mali, where situation is unfolding only now. Do not be scared, Morocco is a safe country, and the work terrorism does not fit there.

Enjoy your stay !

There is a risk everywhere I guess, but Morocco is a more stable country for the region. Its own interest is to stay that way precisely because of the income it needs from tourism.

The latest advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of the British Government was updated yesterday. There are no travel restrictions in place See:

"Terrorism in Morocco 2013" Sounds like a world music tour or something.

I'm currently in Spain on my way to Morocco and I am not at all concerned. The Moroccan-Algerian and Moroccan-Malian borders are all closed and have been for decades.

Relax and have a great trip!

Morocco has no border with the West African nation but its territory is separated from Mali by less than 300 kilometres.

However,as a regular visitor to North Africa

I always try to keep up with political and current situations throughtout the Maghreb.

In light of recent events in Mali and Algeria.

Readers may find this article interesting.

The ongoing battles that the Moroccan authorities mount against threats to stability,as do other Govts. in NorthWest Africa .
