Three German tourists – two men and one woman – were attacked and stabbed by two people with knives while sightseeing in the Talaa Lakbira, a neighborhoods in the city of Fez, Morocco. Fez used to be known as Morocco’s spiritual capital, but has seen an upsurge of violence in the recent years.
The attackers were reportedly under the influence of Karkoubi – a psychoactive drug that changes brain function and results in alterations in perception, mood, or consciousness. Karkoubi is available in Morocco as prescription medication that comes in the form of a pill, usually in red packaging, for which it is nicknamed “red bulb”. People on Karkoubi have been known to commit horrific crimes, like slaughtering their own family in cold blood.
As soon as the attack occurred, a group of locals intervened and took the attackers down. The video shows them tending to the shocked victims, while another group is holding the attackers aside. The victims have been taken to Fez University Hospital.
