MOROCCO

Morocco is a country located in North Africa that has a coastline on both the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. It attained Moroccan western Sahara independence in 1973. Ethnically speaking, Morocco is composed mainly of Berbers. Some segments of the population are descendants of refugees from Spain and Portugal who fled from the Reconquista, the Christian reconquest of the Iberian Peninsula, that spanned until the 15th century.
