Criminal unrest, riots, attacks, and pogroms? The agreed-upon story (almost) is that a lot of people got their heads bashed in in Dakhla recently, and cars were overturned and buildings torched, in a dispute related to fishing on the Western Saharan coast. Sahrawi sources say those attacked were mainly local Sahrawis while those attacking were Moroccan settlers and laborers, and point to police standing back and letting it happen as evidence of state complicity; Moroccan media, on the other hand, portrays it as a dispute between rival groups of Moroccan (whether Sahrawi or not) fishermen mostly about economics. Both could of course be right, as neither economic riots nor settler-on-Sahrawi violence is a stranger to the territory, and frequently related. Anyway, more on One Hump or Two and elsewhere.
