Sadio Balde, vice president of the Moroccan Council for Sub-Saharan migrants, left, along with dozens of Moroccan and foreign activists, protests outside a court where Council president Laye Camara is being tried for illegally selling alcohol and cigarettes, Rabat, Morocco, Friday, Nov. 9, 2012. Colleagues of Laye Camara say the charges are trumped-up and are part of a widespread crackdown on legal and illegal black African migrants to this North African kingdom that lies just across the narrow Straits of Gibraltar from Europe.
