Morocco to vote on King Mohammed's reforms

Moroccans are preparing to head to the polls to vote on a series of constitutional amendments and reforms.

The proposals, put forward by King Mohammed VI, would give the prime minister and parliament more power.

Analysts say that he is widely expected to win the vote, though low turnout could spark demands for bolder changes.

His reforms come in response to protests inspired by the Arab Spring uprisings, which ousted leaders in Tunisia and Egypt.
