Mosque and Moroccan Consulate in Tarragona (Spain) victim of death threats and vandalism
An article by the Spanish news agency EFE, published by , reported that the mosque in Montblanc (Tarragona province) was the target of death threats.
Death threats on the walls of the mosque were sprayed with the text "Fica a morir putos moros" (freely translated: "you are to death f * cking Moroccans").
The facade of the Moroccan Consulate early this morning was also sprayed with red paint, which is synonymous for blood.
Contacted by the Moroccan news medium Lefr360, a source at the Moroccan Embassy in Madrid confirmed the incident. "It happened very early in the morning, even before the opening of the Consulate", the source said.
"It is a racist act, because it is a form of revenge and the Moroccans be held responsible for these attacks," said Faris Rachid, a Moroccan journalist living in Barcelona.
