Moroccan police clash with protesters in the Western Sahara who were demonstrating against the planned renewal of an EU fishing accord. The protesters, most of them women, carried signs reading stop taking our resources. Police attacked protesters using batons, beating and injuring many of them. Many of the injured were women and children. No arrests have been reported. The European Parliament is scheduled to vote Tuesday on a new four-year fishing agreement with Morocco that would allow more than 120 EU fishing boats to use the waters of Morocco and the Western Sahara. Western Sahara is a disputed territory in North Africa. Most of the territory has been controlled by Morocco since 1991.
