Memorial Denied for Swedish Woman Killed by Refugee, Might Upset Children

And as it turns out, the "teen refugee" might actually be a grown man.

Last week, TruthRevolt reported the horrifying news that a 22-year-old social worker in Sweden was stabbed to death by a 15-year-old Somali boy who was under her care at a home for minors. Alexandra Mezher died from knife wounds to her back and thigh after reportedly breaking up a fight between two boys.

Staffers at another asylum center wanted to honor Mezher's memory by holding a memorial, but they were denied by their superiors. Daily Mail reports:

Staff and social workers at a home for unaccompanied minors in Örnsköldsvik, a town on the north-east coast, were deeply affected by the killing of a colleague in the workplace.

'What happened in Molndal could have happened here. That's how bad it is,' Carl Lindahl told SVT Vasternorrland.

Mr Lindahl, who has worked in homes for unaccompanied minors for three-and-a-half-years added that housing facilities for child migrants all over the country are "unreasonably overcrowded."

Mr Lindahl wanted to do a memorial service for "colleague" Miss Mezher, but said that a superior immediately got in touch and forbade them from using council premises.

In addition, Swedish flags were not to be flown at half mast.

The reason? "To secure the well being of the children," according to the report.

A memorial service was eventually held off-site, away from children, but unfortunately, many staffers were unable to make it due to work schedules. 

In related news, a picture of the "15-year-old" suspect appeared on UK's Mirror website in which he doesn't look 15 at all. The picture below was taken at the perpetrators first hearing. It has been stated elsewhere that Mezher complained to her family that she was in the charge of "big powerful guys" some aged up to 24 at the shelter meant for "unaccompanied minors." A name has emerged -- Youssaf Khaliif Nuur -- who is described as six feet tall:
