Grave of GEO (Spanish special agent) killed in LeganÚs bombing desecrated
El Mundo ^ | 4/19/04 | Elena Mengual

MADRID - The burial chamber where Francisco Javier Torronteras, the agent of the Special Group of Operaciones (GEO), was buried, has been found desecrated this morning in Madrid's South cemetery. Mr. Torronteras was killed in the Leganés explosion, by suicidal Islamic terrorists.

The marble covering was set aside, and the body was removed. The covering was then replaced, apparently to escape detection. The investigators think that a dumbbell was used and that they had to be more than the two attackers, to be able to lower to the coffin from the second floor - where the chamber was located. Later, the body was taken to the edge of the cemetery, more than 600 meters away. The police thinks that they used a wheelbarrow for the transfer, given the distance and terrain.

There, next to one of the mud walls that enclose the cemetery, they sprinkled the body with gasoline and set fire to it. Before this, a pick and shovel were used to pierce the body. It is possible that the intention was to take the corpse, given the location, and that when the perpetrators discovered they could not get the body over the wall, decided to set fire to it instead.

I have translated this first portion of the article to the best of my ability, using Google Translator for assistance. Corrections/clarifications/additions are welcome.

This is a horrible crime which is not being covered (apparently) in the international news.

Islamists are despicable people.

Thanks for the ping. I saw this early this morning in the Spanish press. I thought perhaps it would be picked up by US news sources, but of course, nothing has happened.

It happened early a.m. there - they apparently dragged the body out and burned it so badly it's being identified through DNA testing.

Ping to a few possibly interested folks.

So far as I can see, this is only being covered in Spain.

FM, you're there, what do you think?

Eurotwit, has this been heard of beyond the Pyrennees?

Thanks! Well, I'm glad the story got out. He got a hero's funeral, with all of the then and future government in attendance, so it will be interesting to see what Zap's reaction to this is. So far, I haven't heard any.

Herein lies a wonderful lesson concerning the policy of appeasement.

Devils do not stop being devils just because you decide to coddle them.

These Islamic fanatics aren't satisfied with killing, they have to do something like this. How pathetic they are.

Spain, have you learned a lesson about appeasement here?

If I hear 'religion of peace' w/regards to Islam from the Bush Administration one more time, I might not vote.

I don't know if you went on to read the rest of the El Mundo story, but this part is incredibly irritating:

The Police and the Ministry of Interior do not deny that this could be an act of revenge for the police's attempted arrest of suspected radicals three days ago in Leganés, but posit that it could have been carried out by people unrelated to the terrorists, since Islam prohibits the desecration of corpses.

Argh.

Under dar al-islam, the Spaniards and the "PU-Gauls" had better start packing for South America, and take their dead with them.

By their actions, we know our mortal enemies' worth.

From central France south is islam's country. El Cid in 1492 was a temporary setback.

"Dar al-islam", "house/home of islam", means that once conquored by islam, always conquored by islam.

Watch out Vienna!

Invade. Kill the Jews, preaceful "hypocrit" muslims, and the infedels unwilling to be enslaved. Kill the peaceful muslims even before the hated Jews. "The koran tells me so."

In EUrope, Americns should only vacation in UK, Italy, and our New European allies' home countries. Italy shall be under attack. Spain, Germany, and France are already falling before islam. Forget Greece this summer; the IED and belt bomb events have uncertain venues.

These people are afraid to touch a pig, but will handle rotting corpses? I think many a psychology thesis could be written and defended trying to analyze these creeps.

"Irritating"?
If it weren't so morbid, I'd call it LAUGHABLE!
I mean, if I were the media being given that line by a police spokesperson, I'd answer right away, "Is that some kind of a sick joke!?"

Thanks for the heads up.

This story has not been mentioned in Norway, as far as I am aware. Truly absolutely disgusting. In Norway the story today has been on how the social democrats want to withdraw the Norwegian troops from Iraq and instead give the money this costs to Yassir Arafat to protest against US middle east policy.

I am lost for words on both accounts.

Cheers.

What would you expect from a religion that worships a pedophile as their prophet?

I'm sure you got my drift but this is what i meant.

since Islam prohibits the desecration of jihadi corpses.

For nonmuslims, you can't desecrate an infidel anyway, dead or alive. So, chop chop.

Despicable and stupid as hell. Every cop in Spain will learn of this story, guaranteed. All the islamics accomplished was earning the hatred of those who are most likely to catch them on the street.
