Last night I posted a translated article about a horrific rape and mutiliation of a young girl in the German city of Worms. Our German translator JLH has sent some follow-up information on the incident.
Also: Other sources have written to say that the victim was a Yezidi, rather than a Muslim Kurd.
Here’s what JLH found out:
Interesting what you can learn from Gates of Vienna comments.
One of them gave a reference that indicated the girl was a Kurd, so I followed it to a short English report that did say that, and then a reference from there to the story in what I think is the small local paper, Nibelungen-Kurier, which interviewed the girl and her mother at the hospital.
The story there indicates that the physical damage required one operation and another to come, but does not give the impression of life-long debility. The “social and psychological” effects may be worse. She was indeed badly slashed with the bottle. The perpetrators may even have soaked her in alcohol and thought about setting her on fire but did not.
She had met them in before in the same bar and may have tried to tell police about their “drug history,” so this could have been a revenge act.
According to the mother, they left her lying naked in her blood and went on partying. It is interesting that this girl, who may have been a Kurd, was named “Sandra.” A rather kafir name. And the fact that she was willing to talk to the cops also makes her a little more West than Middle East.
This may provide some insight into what happens to those invisible “moderate” Muslims when they get out of line.
