FILE - In this Aug. 21, 2012 file photo photo provided by the Moroccan Royal Palace, Moroccan King Mohammed VI seen while riding a horse during a ceremony of allegiance in Rabat, Morocco. Every year, hundreds of civil servants and elected officials from all over the country must gather at one of King Mohammed VI's palaces to pledge allegiance to the “Commander of the Faithful” in a tribute that critics say is increasingly outdated. The subservience points to the contradictions in a nation that quelled Arab Spring protests by promising the people a greater voice. (AP Photo/ Azzouz Boukallouch, Moroccan Royal Palace, file)
