Adnane Bouchouf’s killer sentenced to death for rape and murder of child in Morocco
The main suspect in the case of the kidnap and murder of an 11-year-old boy last year in Morocco that sent shockwaves through the country has been sentenced to death.
The case of Adnane Bouchouf provoked national mourning when the young victim was kidnapped in Tangiers after being sent by his family to collect medicine from a pharmacy.
Bouchouf was declared missing by his family on 7 September and his body was discovered four days later buried near his family home.
However, not all Moroccans were in support of carrying out the death penalty.
