Morocco's general prosecutor said he would investigate the leaking of a video of a detained protest leader from the northern Rif region that has sparked widespread anger and accusations he had been abused.The website framed the video as evidence against claims of ill-treatment, but marks and bruises are visible on Zefzafi's face and lower back. Within hours, the site removed the video as Moroccans, including some who usually support the government, expressed outrage on social media.Abdessadak Elbouchattaoui, a lawyer for Zefzafi, said the video constituted "yet another crime" against his client.Morocco's prisons authority denied the video had been recorded at the Ain Sebaa prison in Casablanca, where Zefzafi is being held.
