Algeciras (Cádiz) (EFE) Yassine Kanjaa who attacked him with a large machete invoking “allah”.
Diego Valencia, 65 years old, married with two children, was a very loved person in Algeciras, especially because of his links to the world of the brotherhood and because he ran a flower shop in the city.
His body was transferred last night to the Nuestra Señora de La Palma Church, at whose doors the sacristan died late last Wednesday afternoon.
There the burning chapel has been installed, so that the people of Algeciras say goodbye to the sacristan murdered in an attack that has shocked the city.
At 1:00 p.m. the funeral will be held in his memory.
The detainee, transferred to the General Information Commissioner
The detainee has been transferred this morning to Madrid, to be taken to the General Information Commissioner.
The judge of the National Court Joaquín Gadea has authorized the investigators’ request to extend their detention until the maximum five days allowed by law in cases of terrorism have been exhausted.
The judge provisionally considers that he acted guided by a “terrorist will” that he links, at least in principle, with “jihadist Salafism.”
The Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, said yesterday in Algeciras that in addition to the terrorist motivation, the investigations have not concluded other possible hypotheses.
Meanwhile, some colleagues from the house in ruins where the detainee had lived for a year told EFE last night that they believe that “he is not right in the head” and that he had worsened for a month or two, when he stopped drinking alcohol. and taking drugs, he began to pray and became “increasingly aggressive, more paranoid and weirder”, even threatening with the machete and attacking some of them, Moroccans and Muslims like him.
