3 Italian Women Raped & Stoned, Kapverdic Islands

Update. Found the link in English:

2 Italians stoned to death on Cape Verde
By FRANCES D’EMILIO, Associated Press Writer 44 minutes ago
ROME – Three Italian women were brutally attacked while vacationing on a resort island off the coast of West Africa, dragged into the woods, pelted with stones and left for dead at the bottom of a hole, the sole survivor said Saturday.

The bodies of two of the women were found half-buried near a beach Friday in the Cape Verde islands, police officer Vladmir Silva said.

Preliminary autopsy results found the victims, aged 28 and 33, died as a result of head injuries from blunt and sharp objects, the Portuguese news agency Lusa reported. Cape Verde police said official autopsy results were expected to be released Sunday.

Police chief Oscar Tavares said three local men had been arrested and would soon appear in court, Lusa reported.

The women were part of a surfing group that arrived in the islands last Sunday for a weeklong vacation, said Italy’s honorary consul in Cape Verde, Luigi Zirpoli. The survivor — whom Italian news reports identified as a 17-year-old named Agnese — suffered fractures and needed 18 stitches in her head, Zirpoli said.

Speaking with Italy’s Sky TG24 TV from a hospital Saturday, Agnese recounted how she and the two other women had been invited to dinner by one of their attackers — a man who apparently had had a relationship with one of the victims.

She said the attackers sprayed the women with something and immobilized them before taking them to the woods where a hole had been dug in the ground. Speaking in a stunned voice, she said they were pelted with stones and she blacked out. When she awoke, she climbed out of the hole and walked down a road until she found help.

“I don’t know how I managed to recover after he threw a stone at my head,” she told Sky.

The story of the attack has shocked Italians, many of whom consider the archipelago a paradise for beachgoers and windsurfers.

The Italian Foreign Ministry said the two women had been “barbarously murdered” and dispatched a diplomat from its embassy in Senegal “to ensure that those responsible for this tragic aggression are brought swiftly to justice.”

Italian Premier Romano Prodi said he was “stunned” and “aghast” by the killings, the Italian news agency Apcom reported.

Cape Verde, a former Portuguese colony, is located about 500 miles to the west of Senegal’s capital, Dakar, in the Atlantic Ocean.

Drei italienische Frauen sind auf einer der Kapverdischen
Inseln vor der Küste Westafrikas brutal angegriffen worden. Nur eine der drei Frauen überlebten die Attacke, die beiden andern wurden zu Tode gesteinigt.

Die drei Frauen hatten auf der Atlantikinsel Urlaub gemacht. Sie wurden in einen Wald verschleppt und in einem Loch im Waldboden zurückgelassen, weil man sie offenbar für tot hielt. Die einzige Überlebende, eine 17-Jährige, konnte schließlich Hilfe holen. Ihre beiden Begleiterinnen, 28 und 33 Jahre alt, seien zu Tode gesteinigt worden.

Eine vorläufige Autopsie ergab, dass die Opfer an vielfachen Kopfverletzungen von stumpfen und spitzen Gegenständen gestorben sind, berichtet die portugiesische Nachrichtenagentur Lusa. In Italien hat das Verbrechen Entsetzen ausgelöst. Viele Italiener schätzen die Kapverdischen Inseln als Urlaubsparadies.

A brief/short translation of the basic facts:

The 3 women were on holidays and had dinner with some native men who took them to a forest where they were raped. After that they were stoned and left for dead in a hole in the ground. One of the women survived the ordeal and 3 men have been arrested.

  2. Great. So now the bastards are brave enough to do what they do in their hell holes back home in broad daylight in our space? They are like packs of wild dogs. They pursue relentlessly, raping with abandon and then covering up the evidence with murder.

    Maybe these neanderthals went through the girls’ back packs, found their sex wax and thought that meant the girls wanted them. Someone please tell Islamothugs that it’s a cigarette and some cuddling after sex, not burying them up to their necks and throwing stones at their heads until they sease to exist. Frickin’ morons!!!

  3. The minute I read this I wondered if it had been the work of RoP.

    Did a bit of “googling”. Seems the place was a centre for slavery. Hmmmm. More modern history under that link.

    Pre 20th Century History
    When Portuguese mariners discovered the Cape Verde islands in 1456, they were uninhabited but fertile enough to attract the first group of settlers, who arrived six years later. They founded Ribeira Grande (now Cidade Velha) on São Vicente – the first European town in the tropics. Ssettlers almost immediately began to import slaves from the West African coast to work the land. Plans by Genoese investors to create large sugar plantations never payed off, especially after the Caribbean proved so productive. However, the islands’ remote yet strategic position made them the perfect clearing-house and victualling station for the transatlantic slave trade. Within a century the islands had grown wealthy enough to attract pirates, and suffered a 1585 raid by England’s Sir Francis Drake.

    In 1747 changing weather patterns, aggravated by deforestation and overgrazing, resulted in Cape Verde’s first recorded drought. In the 100 years from 1773 three droughts killed some 100,000 people – more than 40% of the population each time. It was only the beginning of a cycle that lasted until well into the 20th century. At the same time, the island’s economic clout took a hit as Britain, France and the Netherlands challenged Portugal’s control over the slave trade. As a result, Lisbon invested little in good times and offered almost no help during bad times. To escape hunger, many men left the islands, principally to work as hired hands on American whaling ships. Even today, Cape Verdean communities along the New England coast rival the population of Cape Verde itself, and foreign remittances account for as much as 20% of GNP.

  4. These are Muslim bastards who want to rule this world. Now we can’t keep quiet, we have to fight those muslims living in Africa and Middle East. We should all make up our mind to erase Islam from this world. This will be a big help to make this world as a peaceful world.

  5. We don’t know yet if this is the work of the soldiers of Allah.
    I deliberately avoided to point the finger at them (yet) and we don’t know if their names are ‘Mohammed, Omar or Osama’- lets keep an eye on it and find out asap…

    We don’t know yet if this is the work of the soldiers of Allah.”

    Yes, this is true. So far the only real clue is the stoning.Is there anyone else in the world who does this? We will have to wait and see I guess.

  7. I just made a day off yesterday and what do I have to see when I come back?
    It’s really sickening.

    This is most likely a the job of islam. We’ll find out.

  8. Ted Kennedy left Mary Jo Kopechne to die in an air bubble at Chappaquiddick. See Ytedk. Bill Clinton raped Juanita Broderick. The other politicians call them honorable. This is why the politicians bring the Muslims here, because the politicians are doing this to us already. We have to stop taking it quietly.

  9. While it is uncertain who did this the first reaction is always “Islam” when a story like this appears. After all, who are the people most skilled in the art of rock throwing? Osama bin Loser should pat himself on the back for giving Islam the reputation it enjoys today among people of intelligence.
