Casablanca

as a strategic port called Anfa. The Portuguese destroyed it and rebuilt it under the name ''Casa Branca'', only to abandon it after an earthquake in 1755. The Moroccan sultan rebuilt the city as Daru l-Badya and it was given its current name of Casablanca by Spanish traders who established trading bases there. The French occupied the city in 1907, establishing it as a protectorate in 1912 and starting construction of the ''ville nouvelle'', however it gained independence with the rest of the country in 1956. Casablanca is now Morocco's largest city with a population of almost 4 million and also boasts the world's largest artificial port but no ferry service of any kind . Casablanca is also the most liberal and progressive of Morocco's cities. Young men flirt brazenly with scantily-clad women, designer labels are the norm in the chic, beachfront neighbourhood of 'Ain Diab and many young Moroccans speak to each other exclusively in French. But not everyone is living the Casablancan dream. Tens of thousands of rural Moroccans who fled the drought-ravaged interior to find work in the city are struggling under high unemployment rates and expensive housing. The poverty, prevalent in slums on the city's outskirts, has led to high rates of crime, drug use, prostitution and the rise of Islamism. Casablanca is a mixed bag of Moroccan extremes. thumb Casablanca Old Medina at night (File:CasablancaOldMedinaNight.jpg) Get in By plane thumb Royal Air Maroc (File:Morocco 001.jpg) '''Mohammed V Int'l Airport''' ( WikiPedia:Casablanca Dmoz:Regional Africa Morocco Localities Casablanca Commons:Category:Casablanca

Vietnam

Laos gross domestic product. Final hurdles to starting construction appear to have been cleared early in 2005, despite considerable environmental opposition. History Development of the RAK dates back to the late 1950s when the concept was first proposed at the Warsaw University of Technology in response to a requirement for a light hand-held defensive weapon for rear-echelon soldiers such as gun crews and vehicle drivers. After the death of the chief designer Piotr Wilniewczyc in 1960, the submachine gun’s development was assumed and completed by the state-operated Łucznik Arms Factory in the city of Radom, where it was produced until 1974. After close examination, the PM-63 was accepted into service with the People's Army of Poland and police in 1965 as the ''9 mm pistolet maszynowy wz. 1963'' ("9 mm submachine gun model 1963"). Small numbers of the weapon were exported to several Arab countries, Vietnam and the former East Germany. A slightly modified, unlicensed version of the PM-63 was produced by the People’s Republic of China as the '''Type 82''', who sold the weapon to politically allied nations in Asia. Woźniak, Ryszard.
