A comrade, who testified what had happened that night, said that he and the victim decided to go out and buy some vegetables and chicken because the restaurant at the university residence was closed. They found that three people were sitting and on the way back, one of them stood up and headed towards the two students.
He did as if he was passing then he turned to come back to me. He wanted to hang with me and I boxed him. When I turned around, I saw that the two guys had already taken Prosper. One wounded him in the chest and the other pierced him in the thigh, “he says.
“Prosper told me: I was stabbed. I saw that a lot of blood was coming out of his thigh,” he continues, barely retaining his tears;

The young Zimbabwean was selected in 2013, at the time of obtaining his baccalaureate, for a scholarship of university studies in Algeria. He was finishing his 2nd year of master in electromechanics.
His death quickly aroused anger among foreign students in Algeria, especially those from sub-Saharan countries. Prosper Ndudzo’s comrades gathered in front of a police station in the same neighborhood to protest the insecurity
Contacted by Reporters, a close friend of the victim claimed that “foreign students have been subjected to several assaults lately. Our friend was killed right outside the doors of the university campus. This is neither the first nor the tenth aggression of one of the foreign students “.
The death of the young student also aroused anger among Algerians, who relayed mass images of Prosper Ndudzo.
Admitted to the bachelor of my country (Zimbabwe) in 2013 and among the best, I was selected for a university scholarship in Algeria.
From an English-speaking country, I had to do a year of French-language studies to start university studies.
Enrolled in the first year of science and technology at Badji Mokhtar University in annaba, I later turned to electrical engineering.
In this year 2019 I was doing my master 2 in electrical engineering and I was already preparing my end-of – All excited to be able to finish, go back to my country, see my parents and friends and start my professional
Alas! It was quite different.
Tuesday, February 05, 2019 at 19 am I went to the restaurant of our university city for dinner as usual for 5 years. That night, it rained a lot, and there was a strike of Algerian students at the restaurant level, so I had to go out to pay condiments and come cook. Accompanied by my friend and companion of every day we went to the market. On the way back, there are some young people in the neighborhood who I was stabbed with a knife in the thigh, the perpetrators of this heinous act fled. I was starting to bleed out because the wound was deep enough, and I end up losing consciousness. My friend who was with me that night, dragged me to the middle of the tar, so that the passers-by would I will never forget that algerian motorists will tò my body lying on the ground while emptying my blood, without stopping, or calling the ambulance, or preventing the police station that was just 200 metres from There.
And it was only over an hour later that the rescue came. Transported to el hadjar hospital, I returned the soul in the afternoon of the next day; so far from my homeland.
Tell my mom, my dad, and my brothers and sisters that they won’t see me anymore. Tell them that, come to acquire knowledge in a distant country, I will return to a coffin instead of returning with a diploma. Tell them that racism and xenophobia have been right in my life.
(February 7, 2019 / MEMRI) Qatari Islamic Education textbooks for grades six, eight, nine and 12 deal extensively with the Islamic ethos of jihad and martyrdom. The books present jihad as the factor that led to the victories of Islam during its early history, as proof of true piety on the part of the Muslim, and as an honorable act that the Prophet’s Companions aspired to with all their hearts—so much so that they were devastated if prevented from engaging in it.
Moreover, jihad and martyrdom are presented as noble acts of sacrifice decreed by Allah, which entitle the believer to special rewards and a place in the highest level of Paradise.
The material is accompanied by questions and exercises in which the students are required to elaborate on the importance of jihad for the individual and society, and memorize Koranic verses encouraging jihad and martyrdom.
This report reviews the indoctrination of these values in the Qatari Islamic Education textbooks for the aforementioned grades.
WHEN 21-year-old Madison Sarah uploaded a new lifestyle vlog to YouTube from her bedroom in Manchester, she was hoping for comments about how pretty she looked.
Instead she was branded “a disgusting f**king w***e” and threatened.
Her crime? Dating musician boyfriend Paddy, who is black.
And she’s not the only British woman to face such vile trolling.
In fact a Sun Online investigation has found an alarming rise in racist abuse, aimed at relationships between white women and black men.
These disgusting trolls have dubbed themselves the coal patrol because they are trying to stamp out “coal burners” – their name for white women who date black men.
The term comes from the vulgar idea that a woman “uses black coal to keep her hot”.
Shockingly, in an increasingly multicultural Britain, in which seven per cent of couples in England and Wales are interracial, a growing number of young women are facing such abuse.
The issue came to light this week when model Iskra Lawrence, 28, revealed that she’d been the victim of “hate and racism” over her boyfriend, American musician Philip Payne.
Much of this abuse is hidden via internet message boards, but experts who have analysed the posts say the authors are white men aged 16 to 24, who “want to protect women”.
These white males see themselves as being “superior” to black men and believe white women are “degrading” themselves by having relationships with them.
‘This w***e needs coal patrolled’
With lighthearted videos on everything from shopping to relationships it’s obvious why Madison Sarah Knowles, who is from Manchester, has amassed 130,000 subscribers, many of whom are other young women.
The model regularly posts shopping hauls from affordable stores such as PrettyLittleThing, but is best known for sharing an insight into her life with on-off boyfriend Paddy, an influencer and Soundcloud rapper.
However, her social media fame has come at a cruel price.
Sick slurs aimed at her include: “This w***e needs coal patrolled [sic]”.
“What a disgusting f**king w***e,” another user posted, while they began a campaign to get 200 dislikes on her video.
Instantly her comments section was flooded with messages, with one user threatening: “Stay away from him if you know what’s good for you.”
Another wrote: “The toll must be paid” and “Burn the coal! Pay the toll!”
The “toll’’ is to make YouTubers delete their accounts.
Responding to one comment, Madison addressed their racist remarks, saying: “There is no place in this world for this type of racist hatred, your comments are derogatory and insulting.”
And while Madison’s account is still active, sadly, some YouTubers have been forced offline by the trolls’ campaign.
‘Coal burners will get the rope’
Another YouTube couple, Alyssa and Charles, who have nearly 90,000 subscribers, have seen their account ‘raided’ by the ‘coal patrol’ on their video entitled “Ignoring my boyfriend.”
Shockingly, online trolls are even threatening white women, like Alyssa, with hanging saying, “Coal burners will get the rope”.
The abuse didn’t go unnoticed by the couple’s fans, with one jumping to their defence and commenting: “These are the most racist comments I’ve ever seen!”
Megan Moxy, another YouTuber was targeted earlier this month over her relationship with boyfriend Lathan, with one user saying “Once you go black we don’t want you back”.
‘Let’s get her to commit suicide’
Glamorous Cassie Standy from North Carolina faced a barrage of negative comments after posting a makeup tutorial video with her boyfriend, Christopher.
In one online thread discussing Megan and Cassie, one 4Chan user chillingly asks: “Can we get one of them to commit suicide?”
“Kill them both” another person commented.
While most people would be horrified to hear of this abuse, this sort of targeting isn’t restricted to dark corners of the web.
Worryingly, Home Office stats show hate crime rose by 17 per cent in the last year but women like Iskra Lawrence aren’t willing to be cowed.
She posted in response to the toxic comments: “Love is love no matter what controversy we may face, our love will light up any dark place”.
