Minaret collapse kills 36 in Morocco
February 19, 2010 -- Updated 2250 GMT (0650 HKT)

(CNN)  -- A 400-year-old minaret collapsed Friday in Meknes, Morocco, killing 36 people and injuring 71, the Interior Ministry reported, according to the official news agency Maghreb Arabe Presse.

The collapse occurred as hundreds of worshipers were gathering in Bab Berdieyinne mosque in Meknes, a town in northern Morocco 140 km (87 miles) southeast of Rabat, for Friday prayers, it said.

King Mohammed VI ordered that the mosque be rebuilt as soon as possible and that its orginal [sic] architecture be preserved.
