Rayan: Moroccan Boy Trapped in Well for Four Days has Died


A five-year-old Moroccan boy who was trapped in a well for four days has died.

A royal statement announced his death shortly after he was removed from the well after a long rescue effort.

The bid to free him had gripped the country, with hundreds of people gathered at the well and thousands more following online.

The boy plunged 32m (104ft) through the well’s narrow opening. The rescue had been hampered by fears of a landslide.
