The French newspaper "Le Monde" was banned in Morocco for the publication of a survey of 10-year rule of King Mohammed VI. The newspaper irritated monarch with the title of the material "People evaluate their king" who reprint survey of leading the Moroccan magazine "TEMP" and its Arabic version of "niche".
The interior ministry issued a warrant for the seizure of both magazines on the ground that "the monarch can not be measured even in the form of inquiry." Poll showed that 90% of Moroccans approve the actions of the monarchy. Union of Moroccan journalists protest government actions , noting that the country has no law banning polls. This is not the first clash of the newspaper with local authorities. Three years ago, "Le Monde" is not spread their number whose first page is printed a picture of the Islamic prophet Mohammed in Morocco Saudi Arabia and Oman because of the very great sensitivity on this issue.
