Ibrahim Ali was a seventeen-year-old French-boy with Comorian origins. He was killed in Marseille, France, on February 21, 1995. He was walking with a group of ten other young men in Marseilles' XVth arrondissement, when they encountered three supporters of Jean-Marie Le Pen's Front National party, armed with guns, who had been posting campaign signs nearby. The latter group opened fire on them. Ibrahim Ali was shot in the back.
Reactions from politicians
Le Pen himself responded by saying:
- "at least this unfortunate incident has brought to everyone's attention the presence in Marseille of 50,000 Comorians. What are they doing here?"
