Memorial to Bernard Borel, murdered judge - Djibouti

Memorial to Bernard Borel, murdered judge

L'Affaire Borel - the Borel mystery

Back in 1995, a French judge' s body was found half burned in the middle of nowhere about 80 kms from Djibouti town. His murder was part of a complicated state/military scandal/conspiracy between France and Djibouti and to this day nobody knows for sure the details of what happened and who wanted him dead.

If you speak French, look at: http://www.ladepeche.fr/article/2011/12/22/1245763-meurtre-du-juge-borrel-a-djibouti-l-armee-francaise-savait.html

Your tour bus to Lake Assal might stop near the memorial marking the spot where the poor guy's body was found as it is on the way.
