    Pope Francis arrived on 30 March in Morocco’s capital of Rabat for a two-day visit, with Moroccan King Mohammed VI welcoming the Pope in the airport.

    A man ran towards the car carrying the king of Morocco in a motorcade during the Pope's apostolic visit to Rabat that has been aired online. King Mohammed VI was standing in the open-top car waving at the people that lined on a street, moving alongside the pope's vehicle.

    The security guards have swiftly snatched the man, with the king's car speeding up slightly, but there was no other sign of agitation.
