Rabat - Morocco's government says heavy flooding in the south of the country has killed at least 17 people with a further 18 missing after heavy rains over the weekend.

In the southern city of Guelmim alone, 13 people were killed by a flash flood that roared through a dry river bed, reported the Interior Ministry in a statement carried by the national news agency late Sunday.

There has also been flooding around the resort city of Marrakech, highly popular with European tourists, with roads being cut and tour buses briefly stranded, according to local media.
