Man dies after setting himself on fire near Trump trial – DW – 04/20/2024

The man who set himself on fire outside the New York court where Donald Trump is on trial succumbed to his injuries, police reported this Saturday (04/20/2024).

Authorities identified him as Maxwell Azzarello, of St. Augustine, Florida, and 37 years old.

Several witnesses reported that they saw him throw some pamphlets into the air and then open a container, pour the contents over his body and set himself on fire with a lighter in a square near the court. The man was hospitalized in critical condition.

The incident occurred shortly after the court had finished selecting the jurors, 12 starters and 6 alternates, who will seal Trump’s fate in this historic trial that sees a former US president on the bench for the first time.

The former president, who seeks to return to the White House in the November elections, is accused of covering up money paid to a former porn actress to buy her silence in the final stretch of the 2016 election campaign, in which he was victorious.
