Morocco's king celebrates Green March anniversary

Morocco's King Mohammed VI waves to the crowd from his car on November 6, 2015, during a rally in Moroccan-annexed Western Sahara's main city of Laayoune marking the 40th anniversary of the Green March.


On this date in 1975, the late Moroccan king Hassan II encouraged some 350,000 Moroccans armed with Korans and national flags to march across the border into Western Sahara in a show of support for Morocco's annexation of Spanish Sahara.
