Three young Muslim-American men were gunned down in the U.S. state of Indiana last week in what police describe as ‘execution-style’ murders – but the news has barely made a ripple in the mainstream media.
23-year-old Mohamedtaha Omar, 20-year-old Adam Mekki and 17-year-old Muhannad Tairab were all found dead in a house in Fort Wayne, Indiana on Wednesday. Police say the men, from Africa’s eastern Sahel region, had been shot multiple times.
The murders came in the same weekthat other mass shootings in the US received widespread mainstream coverage across the world.
Many people have taken to social media to express their outrage at the lack of media attention.
