Human rights groups have raised fears for a detained Moroccan activist who was hospitalized a month into a hunger strike over his arrest following protests in the troubled Rif region.King Mohammad VI Saturday pardoned more than a thousand detainees, including 40 people under arrest for taking part in the Rif protests, but more than 150 Rif activists, including protest leader Nasser Zefzafi, remain behind bars.Two days later, an Al-Hoceima court sentenced 16 people to between four months and a year in jail for taking part in a banned July 20 protest that was violently broken up by security forces.
