¡No soy una terrorista!

¡La mujer que vimos en su bañera, identificada como la terrorista muerta en el asalto de la policía en Saint Denis, está viva!

¡Mi novio vendió las fotos por venganza!


En realidad la fallecida y presunta terrorista Hasna Ait Boulahcen no tiene nada que ver con Nabila Bakkatha, la mujer que parece en muchas de las fotos difundidas por los medios. Puedes comprobarlo en este vídeo.

La fotos fueron tomadas por su novio y fueron difundidas por su semejanza física con la terrorista, pero sobre todo por venganza de su ex compañero sentimental. Numerosos comentarios denigrantes aparecieron en la prensa, calificándola de lesbiana. Tembién los medios alegaron su presunta adicción al alcohol y a las fiestas.

“No tengo nada que ver con esa mujer, ni con el terrorismo, afirmó la señora Bakkatha. “Mi reputación y mi vida ya no valen nada! Hace tres días mis amigos me llamaron para decirme que habían visto mi foto en la prensa internacional. Mi familia está horrorizada con todo esto.

“My family was shocked, and some of my relatives are not talking to me anymore,” she said. She added that she’s currently suing the former friend as well as the journalist who purchased and published the photos. “My life changed drastically, I stopped going to work, and I cannot go out anymore as I live in continuous fear,” she said. “I am sure I will face a lot of problems if I travel to France.”

For the record, Bakkatha doesn’t think she looks at all like the woman once identified as Europe’s first female suicide bomber — another claim that was walked back after police said the woman may not have blown up herself.

“Look at these photos, similarities in looks with her are so minimal,” she told CNN. “Whoever compares our pictures will spot the differences and that we don’t look like each other at all.”

Her true identity was first revealed by a Moroccan news outlet.

Some of those who first ran the photos have already started to issue retractions and corrections.The Daily Mail, which published the photos as an “exclusive,” removed them from its website and deleted a tweet that had the photo attached. Mashable published a story that included the embedded tweet from the Daily Mail. We have updated the story and removed that embed.
