German ‘veil martyr’ trial begins

A man accused of killing a pregnant Egyptian woman in court in an attack is to go on trial in Germany.

Prosecutors say the defendant, identified as Alex W, stabbed Marwa al-Sherbini at least 16 times in three minutes on July 1, in the same courthouse where his three-week trial will be held.

Some 200 police officers will guard the proceedings in the eastern city of Dresden on Monday.

German media reported online death threats against the defendant, who will appear in court behind bulletproof glass.

The 28-year-old Russian-born German resident allegedly plunged an 18cm kitchen knife into the chest, back and arm of al-Sherbini, who was three months pregnant at the time with her second child.

Prosecutors say the killing motivated was by “a pronounced hatred of non-Europeans and Muslims“.

The accused is also charged with attempting to kill her husband, Elwy Okaz, who tried to come to her aid.

  1. Unknown vandals defaced a mosque with animal blood in the Bavarian town of Elsenfeld on Saturday. The blood was discovered by children on their way to Koran studies.

    Yavoz Güzel of the local German-Turkish cultural association told reporters that the attackers had filled around a dozen balloons with animal blood and thrown them against the facade of the mosque. Around 30 animal eyes had also been dumped in front of the main entrance.

    The police do not have any leads at present, but are, according to a statement “investigating every avenue.” As a precaution, patrols are being directed past the mosque more frequently. The police also said that their laboratory had not yet confirmed that the red substance on the walls of the building was animal blood, but all evidence suggested it was.

    The mosque is part of a newly-built Turkish-German club building, and is not yet in use, though it is directly adjacent to the current mosque. The outraged Güzel described the sight of the facade as “disgusting,” adding, “Whoever did this had to be a sick human being.”

    Spokesman for the German Islamic Council Engin Karahan linked the attack to “all these debates” of the past weeks, including the row that erupted after the controversial statements made by Berlin’s former finance minister Thilo Sarrazin on Turkish and Arab immigrants.

    In light of the repeated criticism of Muslims and Turks, Karahan said, “it doesn’t surprise us that crazy people feel compelled to carry out such acts.” He added that the deed came out of “a certain atmosphere” currently present in society, and the victimisation had reached a “barely tolerable” level.

  2. Life for man who stabbed Egyptian

    Germany: A man who stabbed a pregnant Egyptian woman to death in a German courtroom has been convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

    Dresden state court has ruled that because of the particularly brutal nature of the crime, defendant Alexander Wiens would also not be eligible for early release.

    Mr Wiens, a Russian-born German citizen, admitted stabbing Marwa al-Sherbini to death during a July 1 court hearing, but tried to argue his actions were not premeditated and that he had no xenophobic motivation.
