Morocco — New clashes erupted in the Western Sahara on Tuesday between Moroccan security forces and local people seeking independence for the vast, resource-rich desert region, activists said.

People in the regional capital used rocks and sticks in street battles with Moroccan police conducting house-to-house searches, said Brahim Ahmed, an activist for the native Saharawi people.
