On Monday night, sometime after the latest racist PEGIDA march or 25,000 
in Dresden, a 20-year-old Eritrean refugee, Khaled Idris Bahray, was 
stabbed to death in Dresden. He left his apartment, where he lived with 
7 other Eritrean asylum seekers, to buy some groceries before the shops 
closed. That was the last his room-mates saw of him. His body was found 
early next morning in a pool of blood near the front door of his 
apartment block.

Initially the police announced that there were no indications foul play, 
despite the pool of blood and stab wounds in his throat and upper 
body!!! In addition, the site where the body was found wasn't secured 
for forensic examination until 24 hours after its discovery!!!

Police have now opened a murder inquiry and are interviewing 23 
"suspects", i.e. his 7 room-mates and 16 other Eritreans who came to 
express their condolences!!!

On Twitter and Facebook many people have expressed disbelief at the 
behaviour of the police and even in the mainstream press some questions 
are now being raised. However, there has also been a flood of race-hate 
on Facebook and Twitter - one person stated "one less mouth to feed", 
this being one of the milder remarks.

Here is a report from the Guardian:
