Fourteen Spanish tourists robbed and beaten in Senegal
Speaking about racism… oh, sorry, that the aggressors were Black people and the victims Spanish in Senegal. So no especial condemnation and of course, even less publicity in international news:
Fourteen Spanish tourists were attacked last Tuesday in a bus when they were travelling to the South of Senegal, in the region of Casamance, although they are recovering, according to the Spanish Embassy in Dakar. According to those sources, the tourists were attacked at 15:00 by an armed group. After stricking them, they robbed their money and other belongings.
The same source points out that the Spanish were not injured by the attack, whose responsibles fleed afterwards. The tourists were lodged in a hotel in Ziguinchor, capital of the southern region, during the night.
The Spanish group had recently arrived in Senegal and was travelling to the southern part, a place which was not recommended as a travel destination by Spanish Foreign Ministry, according to its web page.
At the same time, another 15 vehicles were also attacked by an armed gang which made the passengers give them all their belongings.
Among the attacked vehicles figures that of the Ziguinchor’s senator, Mouhammadou Lamine Sakho, who was not hurt. But one of the vehicles, whose driver didn’t stop when was ordered to, was shot repeatedly and one of its passegers was killed.
Very interesting that every attack happened at the same time.
