2 French volunteers murdered off Madagascar
Two young French volunteers found dead on an island off the northeast coast of Madagascar were likely murdered. Mayor Bessaou Ismak Ado Crophe on the resort island of Sainte Marie said the bodies of both victims, a man and a woman in their 20s, showed signs of head trauma, with officials suspecting murder. “They spent the evening in a nightclub and were found on the beach nearby,” he said. The two had in recent months been volunteering at Cetamada, a local environmental non-profit organisation working to protect ocean mammals.
