murder in IminTlit

Posted in Uncategorized by Diana on September 26, 2011

What better way to be greeted upon returning to site than a bunch of gendarmes standing at the entrance of and on the road above Imi nTlit.

What’s going on, I asked.

Apparently a guy was murdered on his way to souk. His throat, neck, and possibly arms and legs were slit.

Don’t worry though – the gendarmes and community have reassured me that the murder was a form of retaliation for an on-going dispute about land and money.

When are disputes not about land and money here?
