According to a report by the foreign media, a girl in Morocco’s Larache town committed suicide by taking poisonous pills for rats over non-fulfillment of demand for a smartphone by her parents.
As per the details, a girl—who was reportedly spending a prosperous life with her parents—had demanded her parents to buy a smartphone. When her wishes were not fulfilled, she committed suicide by taking poisonous pills.
A report released by the World Health Organization (WHO) in September last year claimed that the rate of suicide in Morocco is recorded as the highest rate in North African countries.
According to the report published by WHO, Morocco shows 3.6 female suicide deaths per 100,000 people as the country recorded 1,014 suicides, of which 613 are women.
On the other hand, the country has the lowest male suicide rate. Per 100,000 people, 2.5 Moroccan males committed suicide, it stated.
