Family Tragedy in Austria

The Austrian website, OE24 has reported the tragedy facing a refugee family. A Chechen woman lost both her husband and son within a year.

According to the report, Fatima S., her husband Rustan and their four children ran away from the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, but their escape did not bring them happiness. Now, Fatima has only deep sadness and despair.

On April 4, 2010, Fatima’s 30-year old husband Rustan was brutally murdered on his birthday in a refugee center in Wallsee, Austria. Rustan was celebrating his birthday with a Kosovo-Albanian and after a quarrel; Rustan was stabbed with a 40 centimeter long bread knife.

On June 22, 2011, 26-year old Fatima was walking down the street in front of their residence with her four children: Rajana, 8 year old; Umar, 4 year old; Amar, 3 year old; and Abdur, 6 months old. Suddenly, Umar tore himself away from his mother’s hand and ran quickly towards the street. A truck, weighing several tons, hit him and the small child died on the spot. His mother Fatima could not do anything except watch the scene unfold.
