  • Backpackers murdered in Morocco.

    https://nypost.com/2018/12/19/female...o-hiking-spot/


    Three men have been arrested after two female backpackers were found with severe neck injuries in their tent at a popular trekking spot in Morocco.

    The tourists from Denmark and Norway, who were in their 20s, were discovered Dec. 18 near the village of Imlil in the High Atlas mountain range where they had set up their tent.

      You don't go backpacking in North Africa, the Middle East, nor Central Asia without an armed guide.

          I Cant even understand the sorrow their parents have, especially when there is a viral Video of the crime, Every normal person in they area are saying they are sorry.. but still no one reported those crackpots to the authorities beforehand.

          If people in those areas dosent take a responsibility, in reporting religious fanatics, we will keep seeing these heinous acts..

              That they were, beheaded for being unaccompanied Western women.

              Sniffit we may want to revise the safety rating now.

                It is pretty safe ............... in comparison with other North African countries
                No major terror outburst since 2011
                To be honest, there is not a single area where you would be spared that shit (may Greenland and Antartica, there are no explosve belt wearing pinguoins .... yet)
                But yes, two lone women in a patriarchal muslim country, it was calling for other kinds of troubles any way

                  Women shouldn't travel around in muslim countries alone. Not matter if it's Marocco or Iran. Those who do are hopeless ignorants.

                      So we are agreeing that Muslim counties are sh..holes and shouldn't be visited until they get their sh.t together.

                        RIP poor girls

                        happens often in that Region, but Morocco is/was more or less safe. I`ve been there several times but only in citys along the coast and driving on the Moroccan Autobahn .

                        Biggest danger there is a car break down and the constant postponing of the tow truck arrival.

                        The mountain areas are dangerous, everybody knows that. Locals will also tell you that. In the past it were mostly tribesmen looking for money. I think this is new for Morocco.

                        But I expect them to crack down hard on the perpetrators.

                        Morocco is very eager not to descend into chaos.

                          It's not really an isolated incident this . It seems there is an increase in women travelling and ending up in harm's way . Do remember another woman from the UK last year who travelled up the Amazon in a canoe , doing daily vlogs who ended up getting murdered . Seems to be a lifestyle thing , online celebrity vloggers going on fanciful holidays and posting their antics with fans trying to replicate without realising the dangers .

                              The video made by the three scums while killing these girls has been made public...

                              "Sever neck injuries"... my ass! If you don't have the balls to say the way things are then don't report anything at all. These guys are barbarians. They got beheaded with knives ffs! And not chopped, but sliced.
