Rabat: Morocco Saturday summoned the Algerian ambassador in Rabat to condemn the shooting in the face of a shooting on the border near the eastern city of Oujda.

Moroccan government said Saturday that the Algerian forces fired on a group of ten Moroccans in a village in the border village of Oulad saleh and seriously injuring one of them, Xinhua reported citing the statement.

The Moroccan government said that it considered this act as very dangerous and summoned the Algerian ambassador to denounce it.

The borders between the two North African countries are closed since 1994 from the Algerian side following a terrorist attack that killed two people in the Moroccan resort Marrakech.
