In Freiburg, A Murder And A Refugee
FREIBURG IM BREISGAU, GERMANY - DECEMBER 08: A passerby stops to photograph flowers and messages left by mourners that adorn a tree near the spot where Maria L., a 19-year-old medical student, was raped and murdered on December 8, 2016 in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany. Police have arrested Hussein K., a refugee from Afghanistan who was 16 at the time of the October murder, after identifying him through CCTV camera images and DNA evidence. The likely fact that a refugee is responsible for the murder has grown into a political issue, with a local branch of the right-wing AfD (Alternative fuer Deutschland) political party quick to point a finger at what they deem as Germany's over-liberal policy on admitting over one million refugees and migrants since 2015. Meanwhile critics have blasted German television station ARD for failing to report on the arrest in its Tagesschau news broadcast in what many right-leaning analysts see as pro-refugee bias by the media.
