A sacristan has died from a machete attack on several churches in Algeciras (Cádiz) in which four people have been injured. Diego Valencia, sacristan of the La Palma church, was hacked to death by Yasinne Kansa, who also left 4 injured, one of them in serious condition.
José Ignacio Landaluce, mayor of Algeciras, points out that Diego Valencia was a well-known and loved sacristan in his city. He himself greeted him in the morning when he opened the chapel of Europe. “He was a beloved person and he proved to be brave facing the murderer,” he maintains. Father Antonio, one of the most affected wounded, has left the operating room and could be discharged today.
The fatality prevented him from attacking more people. The mayor points out that the murderer was looking for the priest and was not looking for a confrontation with the women who began to yell at him, but rather what he was after was attacking the priest. The murderer ran out of the church, attacked the sacristan in the street and ended his life with a large machete. Shortly after, he was detained by a couple from the local police and handed over by a couple from the National Police.
The attacker should have already been expelled from Algeciras
The attacker should have already been expelled from Algeciras since he did not have papers but his expulsion had not yet taken place due to an administrative jam. He also did not go through any foreign detention center. Landaluce needs confirmation of various data from the Minister of the Interior Fernando Grande Marlaska. “It seems that he was in an administrative problem in the absence of being expelled.”
Yasinne Kansa had had some suspicious attitudes in recent days and witnesses from the area claim that she made one of the waitresses on the terrace near the church uncomfortable. The mayor of Algeciras asks for more national police and more civil guards who are also better paid because he works more. “This is one of the cities where there is less crime on average in Spain and in Europe. The State administration and the interior countryside have to commit to Gibraltar.”
