CASABLANCA - Police used truncheons to break up an anti-government protest in Morocco's commercial capital, Casablanca, on Sunday and dozens of people were injured, organizers said.

The government's chief spokesman said the demonstration was banned and that police acted in response to what he described as provocative behavior by the protesters.

Activists have been staging protests around the country since February, inspired by uprisings elsewhere in the Arab world. But in the past few weeks security forces have taken a tougher line and started dispersing the demonstrations.
