Palestinians who died in Algiers of suffocation was not criminal, says ambassador

ALGIERS, Palestine’s ambassador to Algeria, Loai Issa, said initial investigation into the death of two Palestinians in the Algerian capital on Sunday showed that they died of suffocation from gas and that there was no criminal wrongdoing.

Issa told WAFA in a telephone call on Sunday night that the coroner’s office said that cause of death was from suffocation from a gas leak in their apartment. However, an autopsy will be conducted on the bodies on Monday to ascertain the cause of death.

Suleiman Farra and Mohammad Hamid Albana, both from Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip, were founded dead in their apartment. Both were studying in Algiers.
