Around 57 people were arrested across 15 towns in Morocco to face accusations over taking money for leaking the answers for exam papers.

Half a million of Moroccan secondary students were due to take their Baccalaureate exams this week.

However, the government decided to reorganise the exams after the answers for a mathematics exam were posted online, the Medias 24 website reported.

The exams questions were leaked through social media and sent to students on their mobiles as they were taking the exams, the police said.
