Morocco Survivors Seek Aid as Earthquake Toll Passes 2,100

Macron says France ready to help 'the second' it is requested

Survivors of Morocco's deadliest earthquake in more than 60 years struggled to find food, water and shelter on Sunday as the search for the missing continued in remote villages and the death toll of more than 2,100 seemed likely to rise further.

Many people were preparing to spend a third night in the open after the 6.8 magnitude quake hit late on Friday. Relief workers face the challenge of reaching the worst-affected villages in the High Atlas, a rugged mountain range where settlements are often remote and where many houses crumbled.

The death toll climbed to 2,122 with 2,421 people injured.
