Uproar over prayer calls in Muslim Morocco

Adhan Morocco, a country of 33 million people, gets more than 7 million tourists a year, and there are worries that some may be put off by the five heavily amplified calls a day to prayer, each lasting five minutes, to summon the Muslim faithful to prayers.

Audio technology used for prayer calls has improved, and imams are in competition to fill their mosques.
