Madieye Diallo

Last May, one such mob dug up the body of Madieye Diallo, who had died of HIV-related complications, and the incident was recorded on video by someone holding a cell phone. The video was sold in the town market in Thies, where Diallo had lived.

The Associated Press reported that “Madieye Diallo’s body had only been in the ground for a few hours when the mob descended on the weedy cemetery with shovels. They yanked out the corpse, spit on its torso, dragged it away and dumped  it in front of the home of his elderly parents.”
