Such shame in front of the true evil face of the xenophobia and hatred. Soldiers arrested for killing Ħal Far migrant ‘because he was black’…

The Ivorian national was killed in a brutal drive-by shooting during which two other men were also injured. The cold blood murder took place on 6 April in Triq il-Ġebel at 11pm. The victims were walking from Birżebbuġia and into Ħal Far when shots were fired from a car, suspected to be a white Toyota Starlet. The other two victims were a 22-year-old from Guinea and a 28-year-old from Gambia.
