A European lynched by a mob in Madagascar, who also killed a French citizen and a local man, had an Italian passport, district chief Malaza Ramanamahafahy told AFP on Friday.
The three men were killed and burnt in a day-long rampage on Thursday on the tourist island of Nosy Be by residents who suspected them of murdering a young boy for his organs.
"I saw his passport, he has Italian citizenship," Ramanamahafahy said, adding the man's visa had expired. Nosy Be lies just off the northern tip of the vast Indian Ocean island.
