An aftershock has struck Morocco following the country’s strongest earthquake in over a century, which has so far killed over 2,100 people. The United Nations estimates that 300,000 people have been affected by the magnitude 6.8 quake, with many complaining that the government is not allowing enough outside help. International aid crews are ready to deploy, but are waiting for an official request from the government. Rescue efforts have been slow due to the destruction and inaccessibility of affected areas, and survivors are left homeless or sleeping outside. Flags have been lowered and three days of national mourning have been declared.
