Another woman has been injured.

According to Spanish newspaper Diario Sur, the police have arrested a 30 year-old man, suspected of the murder.

The man is reported to be a Spanish resident, and was staying at the same hotel as the Swedish women when the crime occurred.

Several Spanish newspapers have reported that the suspect broke into their hotel room, tried to molest them sexually, and then attacked them with a large kitchen knife when the women attempted to stop him.

The man was stopped by hotel employees and other guests when attempting to flee the scene, reports Aftonbladet newspaper.

The Swedish foreign ministry (Utrikesdepartementet - UD) confirmed the information about the dead woman.

"We have received confirmation that a Swedish woman has been murdered. And we have confirmation that a Swedish woman has received minor injuries and is currently in the hospital," UD's communications manager Cecilia Julin told news agency TT.

Employees from the Swedish consulate are on their way to the hospital to meet with the injured woman.

Story continues below…

UD are unwilling to confirm the victims' age, instead saying that the incident involves two young women of age.

Why does TL bothers to say the detained suspect is a spanish resident, but neglects to mention he is moroccan?

15:21 June 18, 2011 by kaeru
It's strange that its ok to mention the ethnicity of the victim but not of the suspected murderer. Whats the angle here?
16:27 June 18, 2011 by Rick Methven
Here we go again, no I'm sorry that a woman has been murdered, The Local idiots are only concerned with ethnicity.


Where is the ethnicity of the victim mentioned? only that she was a "Swedish woman" . Maybe you want TL to establish that she could trace her ancestry back 100 generations of pure bred blued eyed blondes.

@ genova

The phrase The Local used is the same that the Spanish report used

"El detenido, residente en España"

no mention that he was a Moroccan just he was a resident, he might as well have been a Martian with a Spanish resident permit.
17:03 June 18, 2011 by kaeru
Rick: No where in the reports does it say that the moroccan was a spanish citizen, it says he was a "resident". So why is it relevant to report that the victim was swedish citizen but not that the suspected murderer was moroccan citizen?
17:04 June 18, 2011 by genova
@Rick You are right, I am very sorry that another woman has been murdered most likely in an attempt of sexually abusing her, and it hurts that it happent in my country. In my previous comment I dont talk about ETHNICITY, but about CITIZENSHIP. Perhaps that has also become politically incorrect? Should we only talk about where the guy has RESIDENCE PERMIT? If the gay was german or british (to say something) I would have said exactly the same, just felt it was not fare the way TL made it sound.

By the way, if you read the whole article you will find the moroccan nationality is mentioned, which is at least as relevant as him being a spanish resident.

According to an ancient, divine source, Martians believe in the equality of the Female. In Martian culture, She is respected and revered. Martians who believe in a supernatural power, hold the Female to be sacred. The universe is formed in Her and His image. Martian culture does not enact harm upon the Goddess in Her mortal or spiritual form. Such ideologies are considered heinous.

The killer was a 30 year old man from Marocco, according to the Spanish news. It is confirmed.

Oh what? Moroccan? Well now I'm pissed...cuz Spaniards raping and killing is totally cool.....NOT. Who cares where he's from, even if he was also a Swede...he should still be put to death!
18:18 June 18, 2011 by just a question
I don't give a damn where the killer comes from. I mentioned the origin in case people started saying this and that about Spaniards. The Spanish law is as useless as the Swedish law when it comes to raping and killing. Probably the killer will be out in some years.
18:29 June 18, 2011 by Rick Methven

The question of ethnicity was brought up by kearu who is now bleating on about citizenship. FYI neither the article or I said anything about citizenship.

It is just so sad that TL attracts idiots such as you two who have minds fiormly set in the sewer.

You are confusing ethnicity with nationality. Perhaps a bit more time familiarizing yourself with a dictionary and less time spouting off on message boards would do you some good. Just a thought.

More importantly, focusing on where the killer is from or his skin color trivializes this woman's death.

En primer lugar mis condolencias a la familia de la joven asesinada en Fuengirola. Una vez dicho ésto , creo conveniente recordar que la verdad es la verdad , la diga Agamenón o su porquero , y ya se diga en España o en Suecia. El presunto asesino de esta desafortunada mujer es un ciudadano marroquí. Esta es la verdad. ¿ A quién ofende la verdad ?. A Rick Methven , el ofendido .

Firstly, the N. Africans don't belong in S. Europe where they are manipulated, abused, discriminated against, used as tools, left unemployed (uneducated or inducted into a soccer league) by a people who are only slightly whiter than them (may we all be blessed). May they find their homes in the North in Canada or Russia and may N. Africa become a garden.

Secondly Southern Europe seems to be becoming hostile to all visitors (n. american - amanda knox, northern european/ russian) one only prays that they are blessed and the pressures on them are eased and they too are become as pretty as N. Europeans.

Thirdly, if anyone harms or hurts it is as a result of some misfortune they have suffered and we ought not to blame the entire community/ country / religion/ region/ continent. We ought to try to alleviate their suffering, their poverty, their state of ignorance and their state of servitude.

I agree that your comment should not have been removed, having read it earlier...if The Local is going to remove comments just for being idiotic and/or incorrect, then I suspect they would need to hire many more censors.

Be that as it may, your comment showed...again...a fundamental misunderstanding of what you are talking about. Jus Sanguinis, at least as stated in swedish law, is still not "ethnicity". Swedish citizenship law says: A newborn child gets Swedish citizenship if: the mother is Swedish citizen; the father is Swedish citizen and the child is born in Sweden; the father is Swedish citizen and married to the mother; the father is dead, then the previous rules apply as if he was alive. Also if a Swedish father and a foreign mother marry, their child (age < 18) gets Swedish citizenship.

Nowhere does it say anything about being white and blue-eyed...or having pure germanic blood from the 1st century...or even having an -sson last name. Perhaps stricter interpretations of Jus Sanguinis would, but you are mistaken if you believe that's how your country interprets it.

Racists are all alike: to you, everything brown is inferior and dangerous. And you will distort and twist any law, religious text, or statistic in order to fit your narrow perverse view of the world. Try living in this modern world instead of creating divisions. And perhaps showing a little more sensitivity to the fact that a "human" was tragically murdered, instead of fretting about whether it was a brown person against a white person. I'm willing to be that in the course of history, there have been many more brown people dying at the hands of white people than the other way around.
12:19 June 19, 2011 by Rick Methven

TL can also remove posts because they are not relevant to the topic, @ kaeru's post talking about bolld soil and Swedish citizenship had absolutely nothing to do with the story and the only reason he posted was to turn the thread into yet another question of race.

The only thing that posts like his and others shows it that they have no sense of decency or care about the very sad loss of the life of a young girl who had only the week before taken Studenten and had her whole life in front of her. Instead of expressing condolences to her family, these idiots lambaste Swedis policies which has nothing to do with the case except that the victim was Swedish.
12:36 June 19, 2011 by Syftfel
@Methven: You are doing a disservice to the concept of free speech when you call someone "an inbred idiot". Remember, slice the idea, not the person. It is these types of personal attacks that should be removed, not the idea or opinion that someone expresses in a matter. You're being unfair.
12:42 June 19, 2011 by Marc the Texan
Ethnicity is an issue because the press goes out of their way to avoid mentioning when a criminal is a foreigner. Even more so when the criminal happens to be in the country illegally. I'm not saying it is necessarily the case here, but it seems to be an understood collusion of all large press outfits in many Western countries. Just one of the ways so much of the news is sanitized to keep the populace complacent.
13:25 June 19, 2011 by Rick Methven

Words from somebody who uses 'sewer rat' 'filth' and other names for people he does not like and is also attacking dead people such as Olaf Palme using the same terminology your comments can be safely ignored by any decent thinking person.
13:44 June 19, 2011 by Syftfel
@methven. I'm glad you keep track. I'm baffled that you can not see the difference between a political figure head, dead or alive, where the standards for libel are a lot higher, than when you attack me personally and other commentators. When I lash out at Hitler, Stalin and palme, I lash out at their ideas - mostly socialism, open borders, and primitive cultural norms, - wich I consider filthy and offensive. But I rarely if ever, will stick it to a commentator by referring to him as "inbred" or "idiot", or some other such well chosen verncular. But you have it right, any decent thinking person can ignore that which they do not agree with. Just don't prevent them from saying it. Most of us can sift through the words and make our own judgements.. We don't need the State(capital S) to decide for us.
14:51 June 19, 2011 by Rick Methven

However much trolls like you try to change their posting style when they take on a new ID after being banned, they always fall back on the old standard clichés that have used before. Posting style is what outed Infart as the latest re-incarnation of Tacos/ravioli etc.

I have had a feeling that your rhetoric was somehow familiar so did a little bit of looking at the posts of past trolls and hey presto found a match with Beynch. who was around here a couple of years ago

I must admit that you are a bit cleverer than infart in changing your name to something unconnected but even so you are now outed as a returning troll

Nationality, IS a legitimate issue because crime is a policy issue.

And the statistics incontrovertibly indicate that immigration from certain regions increases the crime rate. There's no question about this.

Therefore governments can protect their citizens and reduce crime by reducing immigration from particular regions and promoting it from others.

This is reality we live in. Unfortunately this reality does not resemble exactly what leftist ideologues wish it did. Name calling the people willing to address it, doesn't change the underlying reality.

I'm not sure whose errands you are running methven Perhaps you're hard wired into the Cen tral Committe of the socdem Party. If I'm on its enemies list, I would take pride in it. It is astonishing that you spend this much time on doing "research" on the writers. I have never once complained to TL that you call me an "idiot" or a "half-breed" or an "inbred" or any other such attribute. But why don't you debate me on the issues, instead of spreading monikers about the contributors. While I have had one other name here, it was not "benych'. Let's get back to the subject matters, not me. In this case it's the murder of a "woman" by a "man". Or is it gender discrimination to mention that? Call DO! Quick!

Spiral of Silence: If a person feels they're in the minority, they're less likely to voice an opinion on a topic for fear of reprisal or isolation from the majority… If a topic activates the spiral of silence, it means the issue is a great threat to social cohesion…. People have a fear of being rejected by those in their social environment, "fear of isolation.". …People unconsciously issue their own threats of isolation by showing signals of approval or disapproval.

The Spiral of Silence is as much a measure of protection as it is one of oppression. Since it only applies to moral issues, which tend to evoke passionate responses in even the most reserved individuals, it can be used to contain social unrest over highly controversial topics. Though it can aid in keeping civil order, attempts to employ it knowingly are essentially methods of manipulation and coercion.

The Vocal Minority: people who are highly educated, or who have greater affluence, and the few other cavalier individuals who do not fear isolation, are likely to speak out regardless of public opinion. It further states that this minority is a necessary factor of change while the compliant majority is a necessary factor of stability, with both being a product of evolution. (Adapted from Wiki).

I want to live in a culture where individuals are not raped, murdered, or otherwise abused. When such abuse occurs it is logical to examine individual and group behavior to determine which factors most contribute to such violence. Women are very often the victims of such violence. If individuals and society want to end violence against women, then individuals and society should not embrace ideologies which devalue women and treat women as less than equal. I do not respect any ideology which encourages the subjugation of women to men. To my understanding, posters on this forum are discussing the abuser bc they believe that individuals who commit such crimes often subscribe to an ideology which devalues women and thus contributes to violence against women.

In my opinion, posters who voice opposition to an ideology that dictates women-as-subject-to-men, often experience the Spiral of Silence. …

"Nationality, IS a legitimate issue because crime is a policy issue."

What has that got to do with a girl being murdered in Spain?

Would a change in Sweden's immigration policy have stopped her being killed?

Or perhaps it was her fault for going to Spain to celebrate her graduation?

Or maybe you would advocate that only those born in any country should be allowed to live in that country and no tourism allowed, then the poor girl would not have been killed .

You are so gripped by your one track minds that you fail to see the fallacy of your reasoning or the ramifications of the policies you propose.

"And the statistics incontrovertibly indicate that immigration from certain regions increases the crime rate. There's no question about this."

Well yeah, there are plenty of questions...maybe you're not very educated, but in science there's an axiom that "correlation does not equal causation." A thinking man might dig a bit deeper into the over representation of minorities in crime statistics. Factors such as poverty and education factor into a life of crime. Genetics do not. That is fact. A judicial and legal system that is over represented by a dominate ethnicity factors into this as well. Svensson the cop is more likely to give Nilsson a break than he is Muhommad, for the same crime.

As has been pointed out though, what does any of this have to do with the victim in this case who wasn't even in Sweden? Those of you going into hysterics and invoking race in every story, even when it's not remotely connected, should be embarrassed...although I'm sure you're not. Many of us are embarrassed for you though.
18:12 June 19, 2011 by Species125
The reasoning process seems to be thus: An individual feels that women are inferior to men. A group of individuals feels that women are inferior to men. These individuals form a cultural unit which bands with other cultural units to form a nation. In many nations, women are considered inferior to men and subject to all manners of abuse. The critique for some time has been that European nations have welcomed individuals who embrace an ideology of hatred-and-suppression-of-women, as found in their nation of origin. People who hate women and see women as inferior, etc. often inflict abuse upon women. Women in European nations, for example, and the people who love these women want women to be FREE and valued and safe. This particular story represents the murder of a woman--from a nation (and in a nation) which places a relatively high value on the freedom/equality of women-by a man from a nation which places a lower value on the freedom/equality of women. Most women in Europe do not want to be subject to the same abuses suffered by their sisters in nations which support an ideology of hatred-and-suppression-of-women.

@ swedejane

Ah, yes, Swedejane tossing around the "big" words again. You've already proven before that you have the numerical aptitude of a third grader so you explaining how statistics work is amusing.

Particularly your misuse of "correlation and causation". Leave that to those of us who actually work "in science".

I've never EVER mentioned genetics or race playing a role and you are so staggeringly clueless that you don't understand that you ARE MAKING MY POINT.

Socioeconomics ARE the cause of criminality.

If any of us white folks were born in a violent, illiterate country the likelihood we would exhibit similar behavior is high. We're no different.

But regardless of the sad reasons, that doesn't mean the intentional mass importation of people from cultures with a much higher incidence of destructive criminal social behaviors onto our childrens' doorstep is good policy for the country.

In reality, it's just politically correct insanity and entirely against the well being of all actual citizens of ALL skin colors.

@ Rick M.

You on the other hand are smarter, so your facetious ad absurdum arguments are silly.

Whether you agree or not, this is obviously a contentious issue in Europe. The issues are essentially the same EU wide and given that it's arguably worse in parts of Southern Europe the parallels are very instructive for us in the North.

Each country will OBVIOUSLY deal with it on it's own but the issues and lessons are the same.

"Socioeconomics ARE the cause of criminality."

Well then genius, it's clear there are socioeconomic conditions in good ol' Sweden that contribute its own problems. What are these? How can they be corrected? Immigrants make up ~10% of the population and are represented in ~20% of the crime statistics. Clearly, this is the real problem...not the 80% who commit crime. These aren't questions your curious enough to ask though; instead, every solution revolves around drawing up the gates and keeping foreigners out of the country. If only we can keep these strange people with their strange customs out of Sweden then all of its problems would magically vanish.

I especially like this: "Particularly your misuse of "correlation and causation". Leave that to those of us who actually work "in science"." Of course, you provide nothing to support your statement...but again, that would take some effort. I'm curious as to what field of "science" you work in. There are plenty of intellectually mediocre people who find jobs in science as lab assistants or cleaning rat turds out of the cages, and I'm happy those of limited means like yourself are able to find employment. I wouldn't exactly go around shouting in TheLocal's message boards about it though. It's a bit tacky.
15:17 June 20, 2011 by technoviking
@ swedejane

Jeez, deja vu.

A) You make up numbers. Care to show a source...ever? Before Sweden began hiding the numbers in 2001, immigrants and those born to immigrant parents were behind 45% of the crime in a 25/20 split. This is when they were less than 5% of the population. So 55% of crime was committed by the 90+% native Swedes.

You know exactly where to find the links.

Data from other more open countries indicates that a disproportionate amount of the crime is from only a portion of the immigration population, namely Africa and the Middle East.

Other groups have more proportional crime rates, including Eastern Europeans who have been scapegoated in the past.

So NO closing the gates to all immigrants is certainly not necessary.

B) If current indiscriminate policies continue what happens when the current mix of immigrants reaches 35% of the population? Care to use your 3rd grade math skills to extrapolate?

C) If immigrants are a cross secion of their home populations, what "causation" by your definition makes choosing those from the most violent, crime riddled countries good policy?

On what basis can you prove that this learned behavior miraculously stops when it crosses the Swedish border? The numbers certainly indicate that it doesn't.

C) I'm glad you're curious about me. That's flattering but I'll pass on posting my CV. There's nothing interesting you have to offer in return.

Spend more time reading and less time being shrill and perhaps you'll stop embarassing yourself.
