The young Moroccan man’s uncle, killed on Friday May 10 by a criminal gang in Dublin, Ireland, said his nephew was heading to a mosque to break his fast before young Irish people intercepted him and stabbed him.
In a statement, Ismail Regragui said the 19-year-old, who was living with his parents in Dublin, was killed in a garden near the mosque he went to daily since the beginning of the holy month.
The uncle also said that the reasons for the killings have still not been disclosed, saying that one of the killers was arrested on Sunday, according to Irish media.
And to add that the deceased was born in Ireland, continued his studies and never had any altercations with Irish nationals.
For a few hours, a video has circulated widely on the Web, showing the young man’s mother, surrounded by a dozen people in a hospital room, crying his son. Internet users have not failed to express their support and deplore the tragedy that shook Moroccans living in Ireland.
