RABAT -- A powerful quake struck Morocco Friday night, claiming the lives of more than 2,000 people, with the toll expected to rise as rescuers struggle to reach hard-hit remote areas.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed sorrow at the loss of life from the earthquake, according to his spokesperson on Saturday.

"The secretary-general expresses his solidarity with the government and people of Morocco in these difficult times," said Stephane Dujarric, the spokesperson, in a statement.

"He addresses his most sincere condolences to the families of the victims and wishes a speedy recovery to the injured," he added.
