RABAT (Reuters) - More than 10,000 Moroccan teachers staged a new protest in the capital Rabat on Sunday to demand better working conditions, a witness said, hours after police had dispersed an earlier demonstration with water cannon.

The teachers started marching peacefully from the education ministry in Rabat to the square in front of parliament where police had intervened earlier.

Police were present at the latest protest but did not take any action.
