Morocco experienced record high temperatures this winter, and has blamed climate change, according to French news agency AFP.

Temperatures in the North African country reached 37C. Morocco is facing its sixth consecutive year of drought.

The ongoing drought is alarming as agriculture is a key economic sector.

Morocco recorded the “hottest month of January since the first measurements in 1940,” Houcine Youaabed, the head of communications for the meteorological department, told AFP.

Mr Youaabed said this reflects “the consequences of global warming”.
