A German businessman, Rainer Völker, aged 65, has died following an attempted robbery at his flat in Sa Coma. The victim was subjected to what amounted to torture and appears to have died through suffocation after a 15-hour ordeal which left his wife in hospital after she endured a severe beating. Their attackers, disguised in black clothing with their faces covered, seemed to know what they were looking for. Herr Völker had sold his restaurant for 300,000 euros, but a part of this amount (probably one hundred thousand) was in black, and it was this that the attackers were after.
