US: 46-year-old man indicted for murdering Muslim students in North Carolina
February 17 , 2015
A grand jury in North Carolina, US, has indicted 46-year-old Craig Hicks on three counts of murder in the deaths of three Muslim students.
The police have said that Hicks shot and killed the three youngsters in their apartment in Chapel Hill following a parking dispute, but they have not ruled out religious hatred as a motivation for the killings.
A dozen firearms were reportedly recovered from Hicks’ home.
President Barack Obama said that the murders were a “brutal and outrageous” act.
