African Suspect Stabs Fellow Migrant to Death in France

An illegal migrant was stabbed to death during an altercation with another migrant from Africa this week in France, according to reports.

The disturbing incident unfolded at around 11:30 p.m. in Amiens, capital of the Somme department.

A fight broke out near a police station in Place René-Goblet in the city center and a heavily-intoxicated man stabbed another male in the chest, police say.

Bystanders, including the victim's alleged brother, managed to subdue the suspect until authorities arrived.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

He was later identified as Wassim Rebei, a Tunisian migrant who was in France illegally.

The suspect was arrested and taken to a drunk tank to dry out.

He was found to be a 25-year-old migrant from Libya.

It is unclear what sparked the dispute, but witnesses claim the Libyan tried to steal the Tunisian's cell phone.

"Wassim had called his mom during the day to tell her that he wanted to get back on the right track," the victim's sister-in-law told French media.

"He was in an irregular situation and absolutely wanted to continue his steps to integrate into society."

An investigation is ongoing.

The fatal attack comes amid a heated debate over violent crime and lawlessness tied to mass migration in France.

Military leaders fired off multiple incendiary letters last year, warning the Macron government of looming "civil war" if strong measures are not taken to regain control of a society spiraling into chaos.

The revolution will not be televised.
