Memorial for murdered Muslim teen set on fire in Dupont Circle

Irune Rengel | 22 Junio, 2017, 08:16

Hassanen's high school classmates and members of the Muslim community in northern Virginia gathered to mourn her Wednesday at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society.

Individuals and families from the local Muslim community in Sterling, Virginia as well as from neighboring towns and other states poured into the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) center Wednesday to pay their respects. The mosque holds prayers throughout the night during the observance of Ramadan.

However, Fairfax County Police said Monday that Darwin Torres, a 22-year-old El Salvador native suspected of being in the US illegally, appeared to be motivated by road rage rather than hatred towards Nabra's faith.

Witnesses told police that the teens scattered after Torres drove his auto on the curb, but he caught up with some of them in a parking lot a short while later.

Roessler says his detectives are waiting on forensic tests on the Muslim teenager's body, which was pulled from a pond on Sunday.

The brutal assault has alarmed the surrounding Muslim community and reverberated nationally with calls for a hate crime investigation as vigils were held in several major cities.

The No. 20 team was also docked 25 owner points and the win won't qualify toward eligibility for winning the owner title. The NASCAR XFINITY Series, like the Cup Series, also competed in MI , with two teams incurring penalties.

A day after vigils across the country were held for Nabra Hassanen, the 17-year-old Muslim girl who was killed on June 18, someone set her memorial on fire.

"We heard about this type of hatred". Martinez-Torres was arrested in Virginia Sunday after Hassanen's remains were found in a lake near his apartment. "Muslim kids and Christian kids in this neighborhood grow up together".

Police have said her beating death appears to be a case of road rage, but many outside observers are skeptical, especially Muslims who say the case looks much like a hate crime.

Nabra grew up among America's patchwork of faiths, ethnicities and races, something that was seen among the friends she brought to her family's home. The room was packed with teens in Hassanen's circle, both Muslim and non-Muslim. Later, he chased the teens on foot, and majority were able to flee.

"I've known her since she was in the second grade", Salis said. "It's about focusing on Allah or God".

"We know this is an incredibly hard time, especially for our Muslim community", FCPD said in the release. They reported that he got out of his auto and began chasing them with a baseball bat, striking Hassanen.

And Peralta hit the victor in the 72nd minute when Aquino pulled the ball back for the 33-year-old to find the net. Russian Federation stay on three points while, Mexico (1) take on New Zealand (0) later on Wednesday.

She said her family has resorted to a new kind of mindset. "Love is stronger than any hate that tries to stop us", said attendee Elayne Burke.

"I said, 'Be careful when you wear the hijab'".

Nabra was the oldest of four sisters, all American-born children of Egyptian immigrants.

"Where is Nabra?" she keeps asking, Mohmoud said during an emotional interview.

While the Fairfax County Police Department said Monday there is nothing to indicate this was a hate crime, explaining that "it appears the suspect became so enraged over the traffic dispute it escalated into deadly violence", WJLA reported that a speaker at the D.C. vigil Tuesday said, "We're not going to let Fairfax County police tell us that this was just a case of road rage". It's a tragedy for all of us.

Police are investigating whether or not a 17-year-old girl killed in Virginia over the weekend was also sexually assaulted.
