We reported earlier today on an incident in the German town of Kronshagen where a culture-enriching fellow poured gasoline over his ex-wife and set her on fire.
NOTE: The alleged perpetrator of the deed is from Togo in West Africa. According to country table in my database (which is about ten years old, but good enough), Togo is about 14% Muslim. So the burning of his ex-wife may or may not have been Islam-related. However, as we have seen many times in the past, not all cultural enrichment is the Islamic kind; there are other varieties.
As you can see, this video had already been subtitled in English. However, our German translation team determined that Silentium Voces’ translation was more accurate, so Vlad re-titled it.
According to later news reports, the wife subsequently died in the hospital:
After hours of hoping there is now the sad certainty: the 38-year-old woman did not survive the arson attack and died at 5:30 in a special clinic in Lübeck…
The 41-year-old alleged perpetrator is in custody and remains silent about the deed and has himself represented by a lawyer. Many questions are open. There is nothing known yet about the motive of the man, who came with his wife 20 years ago from Togo in West Africa to Kiel.
Both were married but lived separated in Kiel, and have two children aged 3 and 7.
And according to KN Online, the ex-wife’s final words were spoken in the ambulance:
When the woman finally was moved into the ambulance by the emergency workers, she was crying: “My children, my children, what will become of my children?”
From the same newspaper:
An employee of the Mare Clinic, who witnessed the attack, said while in a state of shock: “I was looking through the window and I saw a burning torch. Doctors from our clinic were running outside to help the woman.” In the aftermath she is talking to a minister in order to cope. Other employees of the clinic cannot talk about it, and plunge into work to find distraction. “It felt like an eternity before the flames stopped,” the eyewitness Angela Hauschild says. The employees in the office building across the road are speechless over the terrible deed.
|00:00||Her clothes are still completely burned on the ground. The woman fights|
|00:04||for her life. It’s 9 o’clock when a man with a white|
|00:07||petrol canister is spotted in Kronshagen. Suddenly, in front of the|
|00:11||clinic, the man pours petrol over the woman. Eyewitness: I just saw flames, a man,|
|00:16||a colored man with burning trousers,|
|00:19||which he tried to put out, and a woman on fire, in flames, screaming|
|00:22||and screaming and screaming. Passersby immediately rushed to help and|
|00:26||tried the extinguish the flames on the woman’s body. The fire was almost|
|00:31||extinguished, and then she began to burn again.|
|00:35||From head to toe in flames. With a fire extinguisher and blankets they finally|
|00:39||succeeded in stopping the fire. The 41-year-old, apparently the husband,|
|00:43||tried to escape. Police: We located the man in the vicinity|
|00:46||and arrested and imprisoned him.|
|00:49||His motive is still unclear.|
|00:52||The many witnesses are now being questioned. The woman was so badly burned|
|00:56||she is barely recognizable.
