Moroccan authorities like to come across as moderate and reject all forms of Islamic radicalisation but they draw the line at teenagers’ PDA (Public Display of Affection).
A teenage boy and his teenage girlfriend have been arrested after posting a picture of themselves kissing on Facebook
Both of them have been held on a charge of violating public decency.
The arrest has, however prompted attempts from campaigners to post a million copycat photos in protest.
Campaigners have also staged a sit-in at the juvenile centre where they are being held in an attempt to force the authorities to release them
The photo of the couple, who are 14 and 15 respectively, was taken outside their school in the town of Nador.
