Rabat, Morocco (TMT)-Today Morocco is celebrating the 59th anniversary of the country’s independence from France and Spain.
The late King Mohammed V returned back to Morocco on November 18, 1956 after he was exiled to Madagascar.
France and Spain colonized Morocco for 44 years, the only period in the history of Morocco where the country was colonized.
