(BBC) Rescuers are scrambling to find survivors under the rubble after a huge earthquake which killed more than 2,000 people

The epicentre was in a remote mountainous region south-west of Marrakesh, where there are reports of entire villages flattened

BBC correspondent Nick Beake reached one village where he found an elderly woman wailing after 18 bodies were recovered in a single place

Rescue workers have struggled to reach the more remote areas, with many mountain roads damaged or destroyed

There was also significant damage in the popular tourist city of Marrakesh, and tremors were felt in the capital Rabat and in Casablanca

Fearing aftershocks, many Moroccans have opted to stay outdoors for a second night, sleeping on the streets
