An Afghan refugee (31) who converted from Islam to Christianity was attacked by four Muslim Afghans in Maintal near Frankfurt am Main. They shouted “Allahu Akbar” and said that they were going to kill him.
The police arrived soon after and caught three of the offenders. One of the men was able to escape. The Afghan Christian was badly bruised, particularly on his shoulders, forearms, and face, and had to be treated in a hospital.
The victim also is a regular attendee of the “Frei evangelische Gemeinde Hanau” (the Free Evangelical Community in Hanau) and works as a volunteer translator in the nearby refugee accommodation. It was the third attack targeted against him.
