3 young Sudanese men killed
‘execution-style’ in Indiana, but where is media coverage:
Police in the US state of Indiana say they are yet to identify a motive for the “execution-style” murders of three young Muslim-American men last week, in a case that has barely caused a ripple in mainstream media in the United States
The three men - 23-year-old Mohamedtaha Omar, 20-year-old Adam Mekki and 17-year-old Muhannad Tairab - were found dead in a house in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Wednesday, The men, who police said hailed from Africa’s eastern Sahel region, had all been shot multiple times. Police said the murders were not believed to be gang-related.
“Eidi Mohamed, 20, a student, remembers all three of the Sudanese boys in middle school as “really into sports, specifically soccer.” “There are a few news channels here covering but it really isn’t getting attention like the Chapel Hill shooting” he went on to say. Asked whether or not the area has a history of overt racism towards Blacks or Muslims Mohamed recalled, “I’ve always heard about racist things going on in Fort Wayne, parts of Fort Wayne have a lot of African Americans and African Immigrants.” -http://muslimmatters.org/
Since the media won’t cover the story, we will. Sad to see that the few times the media covered this story, they tried to paint the victims as thugs, criminals, etc. This story is just as important as any other story repeatedly talked about in the news.
