While in Morocco, a man and a woman from Houthalen-Helchteren lost their lives in a road accident. As our colleagues from Nieuwsblad specify, the collision occurred in the town of Driouch while the couple was heading towards the town center of Al-Dari.
In the town, the news shocked all the residents. Especially since one of their children works at city hall. “When we heard the news, we were very shocked,” comments mayor Alain Yzermans in the Flemish newspaper. “The Kaddouri family lives in our town. I contacted their son today to express our support (…) suddenly losing both parents in this way is extremely difficult. »
Following the news of the tragedy, the family went to Morocco. “There was an earthquake in Morocco and now this tragic road accident where our residents lost their lives. Our commune, in particular the Moroccan community, is in mourning,” concludes the mayor.
