Morocco's king has announced a series of proposed changes to the country's constitution, including amendments that would strip him of some of his political powers.

The proposed amendments would provide for the strengthening of the authority of the country's prime minister and parliament.

However, the king would remain a key power-broker in the security, military and religious fields.
