That’s not Christian love, that’s the Religion of Peace: Muslim migrants toss 12 Christians overboard while crossing the Mediterranean from Libya to Italy.
Multiple media reports indicate a group of Muslim migrants from the Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal attacked a small number of Christians from Nigeria and Ghana, throwing a dozen people overboard while crossing the Mediterranean on a large rubber boat.
12 Christians are presumed dead by drowning.
A statement from the Italian police said the motive for the attack was that the victims “professed the Christian faith while the aggressors were Muslim.”
Survivors said they had boarded a rubber boat April 14 on the Libyan coast with 105 passengers aboard. During the crossing, a group of Muslim passengers threatened fellow passengers from Nigeria and Ghana after the latter declared themselves to be Christians.The Muslims subsequently attacked the Christians, throwing 12 of them overboard to a watery grave.
On their arrival in Palermo, Italy, 15 Muslim migrants were arrested, accused of multiple homicides aggravated by religious hatred, police said in a statement. The 15 Muslim migrants arrested over the attack are from the Ivory Coast, Senegal, Mali and Guinea Bissau.
Currently there is a surge in migration from the Middle East and Africa to Italy via the Mediterranean. Most attempt the dangerous voyage to flee war and poverty in the Middle East and Africa.
