A Moroccan court denied bail on Wednesday to a rapper charged with attacking the image of the security services in a song about police corruption. Mouad Belghouat was arrested March 29 after Morocco's National Security agency filed a suit against him, and he is now being tried for insulting state employees and official institutions, a charge that could lead to a prison sentence.
