North-African migrant stabs Belgian boy to death for protecting a waitress, by Abdelhamid Kaddour.
Ahmed S was drunk and harassing a waitress in a bar near Capucins street and the Leopold Place. He was asked by the waitress to leave the place. At this point he caught the attention of a the young Jean-François, a 19 year old Belgian native.
The migrant, who arrived in Belgium only a year ago, switched his attention to the young man who was trying to protect the waitress and asked the young Belgian to buy him a drink.
Jean-François refused. As both men walked out of the place and headed to the train station, the migrant stabbed the 19 year old multiple times and sliced his throat.
The victim was quickly cared for by the rescue services but despite all their efforts, he died a few hours later in the hospital.
The suspect was arrested and judged Thursday morning. Judges and police in charge of the case are particularly shocked by the murder’s simplistic motive.
Diversity and different cultural norms. Are you ready?
