Pregnant Muslim Woman Attacked

Resulting in a miscarriage, her lawyer says.

Two “skinheads” attacked a pregnant Muslim woman on Thursday outside of Paris, which resulted in the loss of her baby, according to her lawyer. The 21-year-old woman, who was four months pregnant, reportedly was taunted repeatedly by two Frenchmen who shouted anti-Islamic slurs at her. Her lawyer, Hosni Maati, said they eventually attempted to rip off her veil and cut off her hair. Police said it is unclear if the attack caused her pregnancy termination.
