At least 1,037 people have been killed and more 1,200 injured in a 6.8-magnitude earthquake that hit the North African country of Morocco late Friday. King Mohammed VI of Morocco has mobilized the army's search and rescue teams to find and rescue any survivors, using helicopters and drones. The U.S. Geological Survey said the epicenter was in the Moroccan High Atlas mountain range, about 46 miles southeast of Marrakech. The U.S. Embassy in Rabat, Morocco's capital, extended its condolences to the victims and their families, and said it was not aware of any U.S. nationals affected.
