RSF: Morocco Authorities Harassing The Family of Cartoonist Khalid Gueddar

I find this Reporters Sans Frontieres report on police visits to the family of cartoonist Khalid Gueddar, who no longer lives in Morocco but happens to draw cartoons that are critical of Morocco, just as spooky as they intimate it is, in a funny until you think of happening to you and yours way. In addition to citing a recent cartoon accompanying an article about potential corruption in Morroco vis-a-vis the drug trade, the article also points out that Gueddar has a history of working for publications that do meet with the approval of Moroccan authorities.
