A young Muslim man has been stabbed to death in Dresden, east Germany, in an attack which is feared to be connected to recent ‘anti-Islamisation’ marches in the city
Khaled Idris Bahray, 20, an Eritrean-born Muslim, was found stabbed to death in the early hours of Tuesday, Dresden prosecution office has said.
His body was discovered the day after 40,000 people joined a weekly march organised by an organisation called ‘Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West’ (PEGIDA).
Mr Bahray had gone out to do some shopping on Monday night, and never returned home.
He was found dead outside his house on Tuesday morning, police say.
German President Joachim Gauck (C) gives a speech as political and religious leaders attend a Muslim community rally to condemn the Paris jihadist attacks, promote tolerance and send a rebuke to a growing anti-Islamic movement, on January 13, 2015 in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. Announcing the vigil, the Muslim Council and the Turkish Community of Berlin had condemned “the despicable terror attacks in France in the strongest terms” and stressed that “there is no justification in Islam for such acts.”
Dresden prosecution office has launched ‘an extensive investigation’ into the murder.
PEGIDA marches has become a weekly sight in Dresden in recent months, and up to 40,000 is said to have taken to the streets on Monday, the day of Mr Bahray’s disappearance.
Thousands were seen waving German flags in the dark and chanting ‘Luegenpresse’ (Lying press), a Nazi term, and ‘Wir sind das Volk’ (We are the people).
