Homosexuality has led to yet another death in the country. An Irish man was found murdered in his residence at the seaside resort of Taghazout near Agadir Wednesday.
The Irish man was found with gruesome stab injuries on at his home in Taghazout. The victim was moved to Hassan II Hospital in Agadir where he later died from his severe injuries.
Investigators told local media that the victim had been spending the night drinking alcohol at his house with a Moroccan man, when the Irish man allegedly asked his companion to have sex with him.
Furious and under the influence of alcohol, the murderer grabbed a knife from the kitchen and attacked the victim.
The Irish man received a fatal head injury, reported the gendarmerie elements, who intervened a few minutes after the crime to local news outlets.
The 40-year-old murderer confessed to the charges against him and recounted the story to investigators. He is currently placed under custody until the investigation is over.
