Nine Somalis Dumped in Egyptian Sea After Kidnapped and Organs Removed by Traffickers in Egypt

(Cabays) — The political unrest that rocked Egypt since the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak in 2011 seems to have shaken the country’s law enforcement apparatus, creating loopholes for organ traffickers.

The Coalition for Organ-Failure Solutions, a non profit international health and human-rights organization, released a study that shines a spotlight an underground trade that world health experts say thrives there and affects thousands of African refugees in the country.


Egyptian officials examine body washed up on beach

But for the first time Somalis have fallen into the hands of organ traffickers that target African and other migrants either travelling through North Africa or seeking sanctuary in Egypt.

Nine Somalis, including a mother and her two young children are reported of their organs removed and their bodies dumped in the sea near the Alexandria, the Mediterranean port city in Egypt. Horrific pictures showing the Somali victims with autopsy like scars and blood stains emerged and circulating in the social media

Reports also say the nine Somalis dumped in the sea were originally lured onto a migrant boat told it was heading for Italy, but after were led to undisclosed location in Alexandria and locked up for organ removal.

After pictures of three seemed Somali or Sudanese appeared on social media, a Somali mother and her two children who were among nine reported Somalis that organ traffickers dumped their bodies in the sea and were recognised by their friends and family members .

The Somali mother was named as Adar Hassan Adaawe, who died along with her son, Abukar Abdikarim who was just three months old, Anfa Abdikarim who was just one year and half old and unnamed man with clear scars showing his body was ribbed apart.
Tributes pour in on Facebook after horrific pictures circulated by Somalis confirming the identity of the Somali victims slaughtered by the ruthless organ traffickers that don’t spare no one they could coercive.

The COFS researchers said they believe many other nations’ citizens also suffer as victims of illicit organ harvesting. COFS estimates that there are likely to be hundreds of Sudanese as well as numerous others from Jordan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Iraq and Syria. COFS estimates the total number of victims of organ trafficking in Egypt to be in the thousands.

Until recently, Egyptian law prohibited organ donation from the deceased so that organ donation was only from the living. This resulted in an unregulated system which has only exacerbated the issue.
A report by the Coalition for Organ-Failure Solutions (COFS), a non-profit international health and human rights organisation, indicates that human traffickers in the North African country are increasingly targeting Africans, especially refugees and other immigrants.

The current horrific pictures of Somali victims would increase the awareness of the dangers face by the illegal migrants but they also add to the tragedy many people ended up when they risk their lives for seeking better.

    Most horrific mankind can go through and witness. All this tragedy to benefit wealthy Arabs who can buy anything with their petrodollars.

    Who is to blame exactly here? Black Africans firstly should blame their respective failed leaders and secondly the savage and barbaric Arabs, of course.

    As long as Black Africans continue flooding to the land of Arab barbarians, the slaughter will continue.

    Black Africans can run away from their tyrants, but there are no safe places to hide from Arab savages and barbarians.

    I sometimes feel okay if Israel turns Arabs into ash. Please don’t hate me. I am just bitter.

    • Isa April 9, 2016 at 9:53 am #

      you are aware of how Israel treats its immigrants from Africa? are you also aware that the Israelis have an agreement with the Egyptian authorities to prevent too many Africans reaching Israel? Or are you too bitter to see the whole picture?

      My hearts pour out to the everybody who has fallen victim to these acts. Killing 3-month old babies … Its terrible to think not even children are sparred from malicious acts such as this. I saw that some one commented about Arabs being the blame and I disagree because there are evils in this world that don’t have a specific race,ethnicity or religion. Evil is evil and I’m so sorry that this happens. Being a young kemet female the same thing happens in my community. Nobody should lose there lives in such a disrespectful and obseen manner. For people who have fallen victim to any sort of mutalation I know it’s not fair and we all must do our parts to change this. We can’t look the other way while babies, mothers, and men die. We’re human but we have no humanity. There’s only one race and it’s the Human Race. Don’t use this as a opportunity to voice your hatred and don’t shame her for wanting a better life for her and her young boys. This has to change people

          I have no doubt that these murders are happening.
          Transplanting organs is a complicated medical process. I doubt whether there is any success, that does not invalidate the killing and ignorance involved.
          I refuse to use any adjetctives to describe murder and torture.
          These words must stand alone in horror.

      I personally don’t agree either seeing a palestinian killing the innocent Israeli both are humans they should live in peace

    • TruthMedia July 3, 2016 at 4:51 pm #

      Your a deluded twat… For that talk on Palestine you should be in the line of israhell’s Fire! These people your referring to also speak Arabic and are Muslims! They were targeted by spineless cowards who are trying to get rich selling these organs to the rich fat Cunts who need these healthy organs to carry on with their unhealthy lives! This is nothing to do with race or religion, because all the named victims are Muslims who speak Arabic! Think before you write!

    • Amal July 3, 2016 at 5:33 pm #

      Mario; I am egyptian; and let me tell you this. First my heart aches for those were lost in such a terrible way. Second; Everybody in Egypt is at risk of being Kidnapped and being sacrificed for organ trade (including Egyptian), every parent having a kid going missing in Egypt is thought to be sacrificed to this nasty trade. Think about it; am Egyptian ; if I can’t find my kid imat anytime; that will be my worry?! Let alone all other nationalities living in Egypt.
      Now whose fault is that? Certainly it’s because of the injustice conditions Egyptians are living in; in such so many are so poor that they go that route just to have a meal for the day or they are so rich that they can do whatever they want with people lives with out being caught or held accountable. Is it America’s Fqult who is giving away millions of dollars as military aid to a system that is injustice to its own people? Or is it my and your fault because we are so ignorant about African countries issues and at the same time helpless about doing anything about them.

      Mario, i could see how u may feel the way u do, yet you happen to be wrong…. this happens in nearly every country in the world, no matter religion or race !!!
      Also I’ll have you know israel doesn’t want all of the blacks that have migrated there..!!!
      And there too is a black market for organs … its a sick practice seen globally

    • masouda July 6, 2016 at 4:32 am #

      Mario, you do know that Israel harvested Palestinian organs?. Do you know how Israel treats African migrants?. Please do your research. Criminals are in every race, country and faith. Look at the crime rate and the severity of it in America, including the American police

  2. WHITESTAR April 6, 2016 at 8:52 pm #

    Sad indeed. The problems will continue because people are ignoring the risk of coming to Europe and criminal gangs who can do anything they want. I hope the young people see this and not take any risks with their lives, it is better to die in your home than suffer horrible death like this in foreign land. May Allah show them mercy aamiin.

  4. Oromian bateleur April 7, 2016 at 3:42 am #

    I couldn’t believe my eyes and I have no much to say about it. But, when we are being slaughtered in our own home lands by our own so called leaders, how can we be surprised by the historically known barbaric of Arabs. Needless to repeat again and again about the Arabs annihilating culture, first if Africans wouldn’t secure safety in their own lands, the agony of dying at the hands of Arabs will continue for another coming years.

    Paradoxically, some of our African peoples are venerating Arabs, while some of them are being annihilated by Arabs.

  5. Onee Biya April 7, 2016 at 10:40 am #

    Words cannot express how I feel about this. Barbaric, savage, unforgiving act. How could a person become worse than animal. Even animals do not hurt babies and young Children unless they are very hungry. I cannot believe such things could happen to another human being by another human being.

    Please young men and women stay in your country and fight from inside as difficult as life may be in your country. I prefer to die for a good cause in my home country rather than being slaughtered like what I see in this article. God save your innocent child and people. May justice prevail and evil eliminated by the power of God.

  6. Bariisoo April 7, 2016 at 1:26 pm #

    Human cruelty reached its apex. Wicked men and their wicked instituion display their horrendous brutality.Corrupted leaders and corrupted society in general and African’s in particular made us to think, Strong world government that protect weaker humanity from barabarious humans with wild beast instinct.If African bad governance and irresponsblity exposed African citzens for brutal and barabarious what is left to call them sovereign country and nation.this brutal action give a signal to those world organizations and those commanders of the world to do something before this planet is turned to hell. can we assume those absolute criminals have human hearts, human value?If BANK MUN has heart, Establish an urgent UN team who can bring those criminlas to justice.USA; Russia, CHINA; Europeans ,African union can use their power to bring those criminlas to world court .Humanity is in spoil and retardation.who is responsble for all these?

  7. Barii April 7, 2016 at 1:33 pm #

  9. Ayaanle April 7, 2016 at 11:04 pm #

    Horrific. Sorry to generalize things but Arabs have shown their true barbaric nature again. Their cruelties have no bounds and they are capable of eating a living human flesh and sodomize to take advantage of other human beings. They know no Allah, God or ethics and they have barbaric culture. No wonder western power bombarding everyday while 10 million Jew fucking their worthless of more than100 million stinky asses. Why the double-faced mother f…rs sent their officials to Mogadishu just this week? To instigate more regional wars and get help for their Nile water problems, apparently. Oh no! Go to hell untermenschen barbarians! Second thing, transient immigrant and refugees have to be very careful and be afraid of wherever they are. Their safety must be priority above all else. There is nothing like home even in death. People should stay in their country and fight against dictators and oppression instead of running way and being slaughtered by cannibal strangers with cockroach ethics.

The Egyptian should pay that. We African must do some things, so that some Nations will respect us. See what the Palestienen are doing in Isreal or what the Kurds are doing in Turkie. We have to stand up and rase our voices.

As for the Arabs they are the lowest of humanity,What kind of a person would also butcher a three months old baby. has the world finally ended? I doubt will,it be more wicked and barbaric if you and I keep mute and not say a thing about it Arabs are far from humanity and they claim to practice (please no offense to my faithful muslem friends)Religion which is far from them,what would Allah do in this scenario I can only Imagine. Please my fellow African brothers their is no place like home if we keep run from away fromAfrica who will make it better? Africa is our mother land she need us to repair by our, thoughts,actions and deeds. As for the Arabs get ready cuz the world is watching and Even God,Nature and Universe at large. Peace. My the Lives claim by these ruthless Arabs find and see the light on the order side.

      it is strange but, this is a medical professional and he feels he cannot leave the bodies would have to have someone who knows how to harvest organs so they are not ruined. so the person doing this also does this for a living, or, works closely with those who do. to finish a surgery, of any kind, they stitch up the body correct? it is what was learned by this man. so he continues BUT, i also think, in a twisted way, it is a caring act he is doing, to close them up. i mean, it does take time to do so. he is treating the body with respect even though he does not treat the soul, that is the human with any respect , since his act kills them.

  23. Ahmed B April 15, 2016 at 10:59 pm #

    Few problems should be apparent to the rational mind in this incident:

    1- I tried to trace these images and the news that surrounds it .. What I concluded is that it only appeared on social media. So, how can we know the location of that image ? Why do we assume it is Egypt ? How do we know this story is true ? just because the twitter or instagram said so ? I could not find any independent news agency confirming this incident. The only source of all the fuss circulating the web is social media alone.

    2- As SkepticalMind noticed: if this story is true .. the criminals will never saw back the victims chests as seen in the picture .. they will open .. take the organ and dump them .. why spend the time and effort to stitch them back ?! this throws shadows on the validity of this story

    3- Why the generalization ? It is so paiful to hear such racial comments from African people who really know how racism is painful. A whole ethnicity here is being bashed for a crime that we don’t know who did exactly .. and even if they were Arabs .. does this mean all arabs are barbaric ?!!! So we can then talk about all the genocides that occurred on large scale in Africa killing hundreds of thousands and say African are barbaric ? Isn’t this what the racial white people are saying ? so now you are using their same logic ? and based on a single crime not a massive genocide ?

    4- The prophet peace be upon him and the Sahaba and most of the scholars of this Ummah who suffered to bring Islam to the world and crush paganism were Arabs by the way. And the prophet said an Arab is no better than a non-Arab except by piety. The most pious of you is the best. Yet you oppose him and say Arabs are just subhumans and barbaric .. just like that ..

    Some rational thinking is needed when dealing with such sensitive and emotional matters … Do we need more divisions and hatred in the Ummah? because you are spreading that.

    • are you crazy? March 17, 2017 at 9:00 pm #

      the bodies washed up on an Egyptian beach. they know how the tides flow and where they come from. easy.

      you ask questions that have the answer attached to them. you say a rational mind should know the answer but you do not.

  24. Sp April 16, 2016 at 1:13 pm #

    Horrific to be sure. I have not the words to express the sorrow and tragedy of this news. This is not a race or religion issue, this is treachery lurking in the hearts of evil men … Evil comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors.

    But I would like to point out to those pondering; those are not pictures of the bodies at their time of discovery. It’s quite likely that the coroner sewed them up before releasing the pictures. The other logical explanation is that dead bodies float, it’s possible that the abdominal cavities were filled with a weighting material before being sewn up so that the bodies would sink.

    As for the “stupid American” that asked a very callused and selfish question … Most Americans are not so blind. But fear can make the simple minded stupid.

    May Allah punish all the tyrant gangs and ruler’s and also all the immoral greedy humans, who don’t value other human beings life, I’m very saddened may Allah’s mercy be upon all the victims, may Allah grant the martyr’s highest paradise and help the neediest people, and punish these ruthless evil beings, Allah is just these people will witness their own medicine down the narrow road in this life and hereafter.
