France apologized to Morocco on Friday after the kingdom's foreign minister was searched while transiting at a Paris airport, the latest incident that has strained ties between Rabat and its former colonial ruler.The dispute prompted Morocco to suspend judicial cooperation with France and to summon the French ambassador.The incident comes after Spanish actor Javier Bardem angered Morocco by quoting a French ambassador as saying Paris chose to ignore human rights abuses in Western Sahara, a former Spanish colony that Morocco annexed in 1975 .Highlighting the sensitive ties between the two countries since February, Morocco on Wednesday filed a counter lawsuit in France against the activists who are suing the intelligence chief.
