A 15-year-old Afghan stabbed a German girl of the same age to death in the town of Kandel in Rhineland-Palatinate.

Published: December 28, 2017, 8:35 am

    An argument had broken out between the two teenagers before the attack, the Police Headquarters of Rhineland-Palatinate announced.

    The girl later died from her injuries in hospital. Passers-by overpowered the Afghan after the crime, and police arrested him.

    According to first investigations, the victim was in a drugstore in the company of a friend. The perpetrator did not enter the store together with the 15-year-old girl. The reason for the argument is still unknown.

    According to information from the newspaper Die Rheinpfalz, the investigators have assumed a relationship between the stabbing victim and the Afghan.

    In the evening, a few hours after the crime, only a hand-written sign at the scene hinted at the bloody incident: “Due to police action, this branch remains closed today!”

    The young suspect is expected to be presented to a magistrate on Thursday. Whether the adolescent is a refugee was not disclosed.

    Regional news outlet mannheim24 not only described the murder of a German girl by a foreigner as: “youths († 15) stabbed in drugstore!”, but provided a nonsensical footnote at the end of their report.

    The “Press Code” is a self-imposed muzzle for journalists from the “quality media”.

    Journalist Ramin Mohabat, a migrant from Afghanistan whose asylum application was rejected, and only reversed on appeal, is one of hundreds campaigning against deportations, because they are “causing tension among Afghans in Germany”.
