A boat captain face trial for throwing six Christian refugees overboard and murdering them. The boat carrying refugees was sailing towards Spain, when the Christian refugees were thrown into the sea on the pretext of their prayers. The incident took place in December, 2014 when the boat captain and his second in command severely beat the Christian refugees before throwing them overboard.
The boat captain identified as Alain NB, a Muslim was guiding the boat from Morocco to Spain via sea route. One of the surviving refugees stated that the captain “blamed the rough seas which were rocking the boat on the prayer led by a Catholic pastor” and “believed that the weather worsened every time they prayed.”
