Belgium: Home-jacking murders carried out by Africans
A couple and their only son were murdered in the town of Wemmel two weeks ago, in a 'home-jacking'. The only survivor was the Turkish girlfriend of the son, who described the perpetrators as 'light-skinned Africans'. This was translated by the English language media as 'North Africans'.
There were various rumors about this being a murder ordered or carried out by the Turkish family of the girlfriend, who were not happy with her relationship.
Now that the suspects have been apprehended (NL, NL), it's clear that's not the case. One suspect, a 25 year old Belgian Congolese, was arrested the next day in Luxembourg. Two others were arrested this past week in France: Christian L. (28, Belgian citizen) and Milton R. (30, Congolese citizen). All are of sub-Saharan origin, and are most probably Christians.
