Title

KILLER CAGED Illegal immigrant, 30, killed his German girlfriend, 17, ‘because she refused to convert to Islam’ after lying about being a CHILD to slip into country

Date

06 Feb 2019

The Sun propagated a story falsely claiming that an Afghan migrant had killed his ex-girlfriend because she had refused to convert to Islam.

In fact this was not the case as the motive as clearly demonstrated in the Court trial and subsequent ‘responsible’ reporting from the German media was in fact jealousy on part of the perpetrator.

Conclusion

After a complaint from The Centre for Media Monitoring the story was removed from the website entirely.
