Bomb wrecks Argana Café in Marrakech


I wrote a review of Argana Café in Marrakech the other day. Sadly this tourist restaurant was destroyed in bomb attack April 28th killing 15 people.

We decided to get a view to the giant food fair from its terraces one of the first nights of our stay. My fellow travelers were skeptic to enjoy the food served here, and we decided to have a meal in a tourist restaurant.

Café Argana was located on the Djemaa el Fna square, the very heart of Marrakech a busy market place during day, turning into a giant food market at dawn.

The nationalities of those killed is unclear but French news agency AFP said six were French and three Moroccan. The last major attack in Morocco was in Casablanca in 2003, when 45 people, including suicide bombers, were killed
