Memorials to “head-scarf martyr” vandalized in Germany

Three memorials to a murdered Muslim woman in Dresden, Germany have been vandalized, police said Friday.

Marwa el-Shirbini, 31, was dubbed the ‘head-scarf martyr‘ in some Islamic nations after a Russian-born, self-confessed racist stabbed her to death in July 2009 in a courtroom. He was on trial for insulting her over her Islamic dress and appearance.
