Following the travel ban to leave or enter 8 cities in the kingdom before midnight, Sunday July 26th, many have flocked to the highway and train stations creating an unprecedented congestion on the roads. Photos:

Stations and highways were jammed on the evening of Sunday July 26. The goal was to leave before midnight from Tangier, Tetouan, Fez, Meknes, Casablanca, Berrechid, Settat and Marrakech after the government announced a travel ban from or to these cities.

A wave of panic hit among many of our fellow citizens, who rushed into train and bus stations or threw themselves in their cars, in order to celebrate Eid Al Adha (Friday, July 31st) with their families, thus saturating the road and highway network causing many traffic accidents along the way.
