    First of all, thank you for sharing this post reveling the human decision of my country of Morocco under all kind of circumstances to accept the landing of a suspicious plane (fly TK15), after other countries refuse this help,
    But is not gentle to thank my country by showing it’s map by the half, this touched us deeply.
    Thank you to do your best in order to rectify the Map picture ASAP.
