 An Algerian man was found dead in his room after two attackers followed him home and slit his throat, writing ‘gay’ on the wall with his own blood. 

21-year-old medical student Assil Belalta returned home around 7pm on Sunday night in the area of Ben Aknoun, Algiers. Assil’s friends found his lifeless body and reported it to the police. Assil Belalta was found dead in his room (Picture: sa_xoun).

The group posted about the death on Facebook, calling the killing a ‘homophobic hate crime at the university city of Ben Aknoun in Algiers.’ The post went on to add: ‘This vile and homophobic act occurred two weeks after the statements of the president of the Algerian Magistrates Union, Mr. Laîdouni. ‘[He] said that human rights associations and NGOs asking for the decriminalization of homosexuality in Algeria and the fight against homophobia are “trampling on the values and foundations of the Algerian people, who do not show tolerance to homosexual people”, and that the magistrates will “face anyone who wants to establish laws against the specificities of the Algerian people”.’ Hundreds of students rallied outside the Faculty of Medicine to pay tribute to Assil (Picture: sa_xoun).
