An Algerian man who almost killed his 25-year-old student victim shouted out ‘if Allah wills it’ in Arabic as he raped her in a darkened alley, a court has heard.
The man, identified only by his first name Rheda, is accused of following the student as she walked home from a nightclub at 5am in Hannover, Germany.
Afterwards, with his victim badly beaten, he is alleged to have climbed off her and asked her if she enjoyed it.
The shocking details were revealed at the trial of the 37-year-old asylum seeker from Algeria who has denied rape. Prosecutors say DNA evidence links him to the crime.
The young woman, identified only by her first name Lara, said it was the worst moment of her life when she was attacked.
