Five bodies were found in a bank set ablaze in Morocco on the sidelines of one of many demonstrations calling for change around the country, the interior ministry said on Monday.
Some 128 people, mostly security officers, were injured and 120 people were arrested in unrest on Sunday following demonstrations that drew around 37,000 Moroccans in dozens of cities and towns, according to Interior Minister Taib Cherkaoui.
He said 120 people had been arrested.
Protesters were demanding King Mohammed give up some powers, dismiss the government and clamp down on corruption.
Cherkaoui told a news conference that the protests had been peaceful but minors and troublemakers had committed acts of vandalism in Marrakesh, Tangier, Sefrou and other towns.
The charred bodies were found in a bank in the northern town of Hoceima. Cherkaoui said shops, public institutions, banks and cars had been damaged in various cities hit by the unrest.
"Some troublemakers forced their way into a customs building and stole drugs and alcohol," Cherkaoui said.
Sunday's protests were the biggest demonstrations in Morocco since uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia overthrew their longtime presidents and sent a wave of protests across the Arab world.
