Despite facing harsh opposition, British pop star Elton John performed during the Mawazine international music festival in Rabat on Wednesday night.



Morocco’s main opposition party, Islamist Justice and Development Party, had called for the singer to be banned from the festival, arguing his appearance would pose “a risk of encouraging homosexuality in Morocco."
