The Police deny a hoax that accused a Moroccan of having killed a man in Almería

In recent days a video has circulated on social networks in which you can see a person assaulting another on the side of a road, next to a car. The video went viral accompanied by the message: “A #Moroccan kills a 40-year-old Spaniard in Retamar (Almería) “.

However, what happened was the exact opposite, as revealed this Wednesday by the portal: the detainee for the assault seen in the video is a 33-year-old Spanish person and the deceased is a Moroccan national.

The National Police has assured that the attack occurred on the Mediterranean highway, between Toyo and Retamar, on August 21, around 8 in the morning and specifies that the detainee is “the sentimental partner of the deceased’s niece “.

In the different messages that circulate on social networks, users launched different accusatory messages. “A Moroccan man beating a man’s head”; “The victim, a 40-year-old Spaniard, has died in the hospital (…). We still do not react”; or “The Civil Guard has dozens of cases of all the scum that is entering the Almeria coast”; are some of the messages posted. All of them hoaxes.
