The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BERLIN: Po­lice in the Ger­man state of Thuringia are in­ves­ti­gat­ing ac­cu­sa­tions that neigh­bours of a refugee who com­mit­ted sui­cide en­cour­aged him to jump to his death. The 17-year-old So­mali jumped from a win­dow in a block of flats on Fri­day in Sch­moelln town. “We have re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that some on­look­ers stood by and watched this hap­pen for a while and called on him to jump,” lo­cal mayor Sven Schrade said. The teenager was be­lieved to be un­der­go­ing psy­chi­atric treat­ment and had gone on a ram­page in the build­ing be­fore he jumped. – dpa
