King Mohammed appeared to be unfazed by the incident and continued to wave at mass crowds from his open top vehicle.

It is currently unclear what the mans motive was or whether he has been arrested, but he could be seen brandishing a white note.

Pope Francis was in the country as part of a 27-hour visit to strengthen ties between Christians and Muslims.

During his visit, the pontiff also showed his support for new migrants in Morocco.
