In Casablanca, Explosion Kills One at Video Game Arcade

March 11, 2009 -

Was it a bomb?

The Associated Press reports that a video game arcade in Casablanca was rocked by an explosion which left at least one person dead this morning:

Hassan Sajeed says the explosion occurred at about 8:45 a.m. in front of or inside a video game arcade on his street, the Boulevard el Joulane.

Sajeed said he believed the explosion was a bomb, and that windows were blown out as far as 40 meters (yards) away.

However, an unnamed official at the Moroccan Interior Ministry said that the blast appeared to be caused by natural gas.

The AP notes that Casablanca experienced a series of deadly terrorist bombings in 2003.

Andrew EisenTo be fair, that's based solely on the links you've shared here. Maybe the rest of its output is golden.05/06/2015 - 4:22pm
Andrew EisenGreat, enjoy them! Although Techraptor has some of the worst, most disingenuous reporting I've ever seen.05/06/2015 - 3:54pm

Andrew EisenFingers crossed and I really do mean that but my gut tells me this project will die on the vine like Based Gamer and GamerGate Facts (I think that's what it was called) before it.05/06/2015 - 2:58pm
Andrew EisenIt has way more problems than I have the space, time or patience to cover here. However, it appears brand new so maybe given time it will grow and improve.05/06/2015 - 2:58pm
Andrew EisenMy opinion (which I'm sure everyone is super duper interested in) is that something like a game site ombudsman could be valuable. It's something that's been suggested before, in fact. Unfortunately, this ain't it.05/06/2015 - 2:56pm

WonderkarpMost Political watchdog group websites will detail those they feel commited bigger injustices. Southern Poverty Law Center is an example.05/06/2015 - 12:41pm
MechaCrashThe fact that a good chunk of the page is made of a hit list is not at ALL creepy.05/06/2015 - 12:01pm
WonderkarpI dont think the layout is too bad. I've seen better. got the articles front and center which is the meat of the site, really.05/06/2015 - 11:38am
Andrew EisenEh, okay. Still not a fan of the layout but I'm getting a better sense of what it's trying to do. Less crap layout and more just different. Continuing on!05/06/2015 - 11:30am
Andrew EisenWow. That is quite possibly the most jumbled, confusing layout for a site I've ever seen. What an incomprehensible mess! Well, maybe the content is where it's at.05/06/2015 - 11:25am

WonderkarpSo this was released...I want to say today. http://deepfreeze.it/ Its a large bit of information pertaining too GamerGate and things involved with it. There's an article on James Fudge, but it just lists that he was a member of Gamejournospros and the05/06/2015 - 11:12am

Andrew EisenMatt - What feminist/anti-feminist insanity are you talking about? Certainly not the contents of the article EZK linked. Maybe the comments of said article?05/06/2015 - 9:10am
Infophile@Wonderkarp: The P.T. re-download issue is apparently limited to the US PSN only. Apparently Europe doesn't have this problem. So perhaps this means it'll be fixed.05/06/2015 - 8:20am
IvresseYou're talking about decisions in general. I prefer to judge decisions on a case-by-case basis.05/06/2015 - 8:10am
