Why Nabra?

posted on June 11, 2018

For Slate, Sally H. Jacobs reports from Reston, Virginia, one year after the rape and murder of Nabra Hassenen. The Muslim teenager was abducted and killed after leaving her mosque during Ramadan, in what police say was a road rage incident. “The police can say whatever they want, but I believe with all my heart that it was a hate crime,” says Nabra’s father, Mohmod Hassanen. Jacob writes, “The uniquely horrifying aspects of Nabra’s death, how she was torn from her friends during the most sacred time of the year, have only made the debate that much more fraught.”
