Moroccan Royal Motorcade Runs Down By-Stander

Moroccans are sharing links for a video showing a car which is part of a royal motorcade ferrying Moroccan King Mohammed VI running over a man in Tangiers during the visit of French President Francois Hollande.

Samia Errazzouki tweets:

Hollande was in Morocco for a two-day visit and was met by Moroccan King Mohammed VI on Saturday. The video shows a vehicle in a motorcade with its doors open run over a by-stander moments after the King and his guest passed. The waving cheering crowds then start screaming.

The video was uploaded by Tanja7.com on YouTube and has been viewed more than 31,000 times so far.

It is not clear what happened to the passer by.
