German couriers are murdered (5 min)
Anyone wishing to escape imprisoned Europe through Casablanca requires an exit visa. Couriers are murdered while delivering documents and police round up the usual suspects. One tries to run and is shot dead; he turns out to be an anti-Nazi rebel. A pickpocket explains the commotion to tourists, and then robs them. Nazi officer Strasser arrives to monitor the murder investigation. Police prefect Renault welcomes him and promises to capture the culprit that night at Rick's Cafe.
