Demonstrators have staged a protest outside a court in Rabat to coincide with the latest hearing in the trial of a Moroccan journalist accused of undergoing an illegal abortion and having sex before marriage.
In a letter written from prison, Hajar Raissouni said the charges were fabricated and motivated by her work, which had been critical of the government.
