This rumour is confirmed true and is of low priority – here's why:
Refugees and their leaders confirmed it true that special announcements were made in churches in regards to the incident. However, they could not confirm the authenticity of the rumour that one person died from the phone calls. They also confirmed the person who died from such calls was not a refugee. But they said announcements made were precautionary measures put in place to avoid such occurrences in the future.
