Moroccan refugees slaughter Swedish, sodomite in ‘anti-homosexual hate crime’
The alleged attackers are 16-year-old and 19-year-old refugees from Morocco, where homosexuality is illegal.
They are accused of attacking the man in Sweden over his sexuality after he offered to give them clothes and food.
The two migrants then allegedly went back to the gay man’s apartment where they claim he tried to have sex with them.
But police found a video on the 16-year-old’s phone showing the victim beaten up and bound on the apartment’s floor.
The teenager can be heard abusing the man over his sexuality in the clip, according to police.
The pair claim the victim was dressed as a woman when they met him – but the man’s partner has denied this.
A dead snake was found wrapped around his neck in what investigators have called a “mindless assault and a brutal murder”.
According to Swedish newspaper Expressen, the 16-year-old told police: “I am very afraid of snakes, how could I have put it there?”
