Former neighbor: - Incredibly sad
Monday took family, friends and acquaintance with goodbye.Among them are Rebiba's father, Yohannes Tzegai Woldemariam, and Nadia's father, Abdelaziz Adem Ali.
VG talked to Tone Stenstad who was next door to Mebrak Solomon in the 80's. Stenstad remembers her from that time like a warm and loving woman.
"I was totally shocked when I was told they were dead. This is unbelievably sad, so it's important for me to be in the funeral.
Christian and Muslim ceremony
Mother Mebrak and Little sister Rebiba were Christians. Stores sister Nadia was a Muslim. First, a Christian funeral ceremony was held with all the three crates in the chapel before the crates were then carried to the tombs of the Muslim grave where they would be buried side by side. Then loudly cried out of the grave.
A Muslim prayer ceremony was conducted by the grave followed by a Muslim and Christian graveyard, which is similar in shape.
How could that happen?
The preliminary autopsy report has not revealed any obvious cause of death. The police are therefore awaiting the final report, but it may take two to three months for the results to be available.
According to the police there is no suspicion that there has been something criminal.The main theories
are dislocation, disease or poisoning.
