Three young Muslim-American men were gunned down in the U.S. state of Indiana last week in what police describe as ‘execution-style’ murders – but the news has barely made a ripple in the mainstream media.

23-year-old Mohamedtaha Omar, 20-year-old Adam Mekki and 17-year-old Muhannad Tairab were all found dead in a house in Fort Wayne, Indiana on Wednesday. Police say the men, from Africa’s eastern Sahel region, had been shot multiple times.

The murders came in the same week that other mass shootings in the US received widespread mainstream coverage across the world.

Many people have taken to social media to express their outrage at the lack of media attention.

Aljazeera reports:

Last Saturday night, a man identified as Jason Dalton drove around the Michigan city of Kalamazoo and randomly shot people, leaving at least six dead.

Then on Thursday, three people were killed and at least 14 others wounded by a gunman in a series of shootings in the state of Kansas.

After major online news site Vox published a piece on the Fort Wayne shootings on Saturday, many took to social media to question why there had not been more coverage.

Police told local media that they did not believe the murders were linked to the men’s ethnicity or religion.
