• Muslim teen murdered after leaving mosque

    A 17-year-old girl was murdered in Virginia after she left a mosque over the weekend — and police found what they believe were her remains in a local pond hours later, according to reports.

    Nabra Hassanen, 17, of Reston, was praying for Ramadan at the ADAMS (All Dulles Area Muslim Society) center morning before she walked with a group of friends to get breakfast before the start of their fast, The Washington Post reported.

    The teens were leaving IHOP when a driver approached them. Hassanen’s friends managed to run back to the mosque, but she was left behind, the paper reported.

    Darwin Martinez Torres, 22, of Sterling, has been charged with murder in connection to Hassanen’s death, according to the report. Cops nabbed him during a traffic stop as they searched for the missing girl.

    Police discovered the remains, thought to be Hassanen’s, around

    The chief medical examiner’s office will declare the manner of death, and officially determine whether the remains belong to Hassanen.

    The girl’s mother told The Washington Post that detectives said her daughter was struck with a metal bat.

    “What investigators told the father and the mother, he hit her in the head and put her in the car and he threw her in the water,” family friend and spokesperson Abas Sherif told WJLA.

    Cops are investigating whether the slaying was a hate crime.

    ADAMS Center representatives said in a statement issued to WJLA that they are “devastated and heartbroken as our community undergoes and processes this traumatic event.”

    “It is a time for us to come together to pray and care for our youth,” the statement said. “ADAMS has licensed counselors on site to assist anyone in need of counseling during these difficult times.”

    Family friend Isra Chaker posted a photo of Hassanen on Facebook evening, with an emotional caption.

    “This is what the world has come to,” she wrote. “In these blessed nights of this month, we are being tested beyond imagine. May Allah grant her jannah and make this unbelievable tragedy easier on her family. No words.”

    night, more than 30 women gathered at Hassanen’s apartment, sobbing and comforting one another, The Washington Post reported.

    “Please pray for me, please pray for me,” the teen’s mother, Sawsan Gazzar, sobbed in Arabic on a phone call with her brother and sister in Egypt. “Pray for me that I can handle this . . . I lost my daughter, my first reason for happiness.”
