Afterword Very good case, it's pretty well written! The only thing I have to say is that there is little to no plot in the main murder investigation, just in the AI. ;) PetersCorporal (talk) 23:14, September 26, 2016 (UTC)

Hamid was revealed to be one of the rebels and was supposed to be meeting someone in Algiers. Luckily, Marina was already in Algiers, she showed the player around by video chat. After that, the player instructed her how to examine clues and then interrogated suspects using video chat.

Salim Ziyyad was found to be the killer. After denying involvement, Salim admitted he killed Hamid. In one meeting between Salim and Hamid, everything went normal until suddenly Hamid outed his flyssa sword to Salim's neck and asked him for blood. Salim panicked and took the sword to slash Hamid's neck with it in self-defense. Judge Rosenbloom sentenced him 25 years in jail.

Omar Alfarsi claimed to have news about Ad-Dima. He had a list of Ad-Dima affiliates that he wanted to share but lost it. A look around Maqam Echahid resulted in finding the paper and that Arshad bin Zakaria was a member of Ad-Dima. Arshad mentioned that they wanted to kill the government officials for reasons he did not disclose, but he told the team to have another look at Desert Village. Chief Oakley also wanted the player to check in the factory as the rebels had a meeting there.

At the factory, the player found Ronald Tareq's recording stating that foreigners should not come to Sahara and he would try to prevent that from happening. When asked, Tareq stated that they took advantage of Sahara while the natives starved to death. However, Tareq said that he had plans for innovating the Sahara.

In the desert village, the team found that there was a Ad-Dima base in Tunisia so the team headed there.
