    German police detained a 17-year-old Afghan refugee, who is suspected of having raped and murdered a 19-year-old medical student in the southwestern German city of Freiburg, local media reported on Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The teenager was detained after DNA tests found on the victim’s body, the Bild media outlet reported.

    He is said to have arrived in Germany two years ago and to speak German. However, during the questioning the suspect resorted to the help of an interpreter.

    If the man is found guilty, he may face up to 10 years in jail.

    According to other media reports, the refugee was known to the German police as he was suspected of a physical assault.

    Student Maria L. was murdered on October 15 after a university party. She was a believing Catholic and a member of a Facebook group Fluechtlingshilfe Freiburg (Aid for Refugees in Freiburg).

      Another girl, 29, who was jogging, was raped then murdered by an Afghan "refugee" some days ago in Germany...

      About this one : "She was a believing Catholic and a member of a Facebook group Fluechtlingshilfe Freiburg (Aid for Refugees in Freiburg)." I suppose that is this rare event they call "karma" ?

      Probably lying about his age like most of the "bearded" child refugees Should be tried as an adult and the media should stop claiming he's a child trying to get sympathy from the public. He's an adult and deserves no sympathy.
