Vacationing Moroccan king drains water supply from villages outside Paris

Vacationing Moroccan king drains water supply from villages outside Paris:

The residents of some villages near Paris, chosen as a place of recreation for the King of Morocco, are far from amused. The monarch, who brought up to 300 people with him, has drained their water supplies.

King Mohamed VI apparently loves pompous holidays – for his French vacations in the small village of Betz he brought a whole entourage of 300 people. Betz, some 40km from the French capital, has a population of around 1,000.

The vacationers who arrived August 24 drained all the water resources of a small village in a single day, according to French media. The water was necessary not only for consumption, but for keeping the garden and watering horses in the king’s huge castle (or, perhaps, oasis).

“We received a message from the water department which advised us from drinking tap water,” local resident Dimitri told Le Parisien.

Morocco, Algeria ‘must take back rejected refugees’ – German economy minister

Morocco, Algeria ‘must take back rejected refugees’ – German economy minister:

North African countries, such as Morocco and Algeria, must take back their citizens whose asylum applications are rejected by Germany, economy minister and Social Democratic Party (SPD) leader Sigmar Gabriel has stated.

“Germany is willing to economically help these countries, but only if their governments act fairly and let citizens who have no right to [be granted] asylum in our country enter their territories,” Gabriel said in an interview with the ARD ‘Tagesthemen’.

“It cannot be that one receives [development] aid, but does not accept back its own citizens who can’t get asylum in our country because they simply have no reason to flee their country,” Gabriel added.
