French Woman in Bikini Beaten by Muslims
An attack on a woman in Léo Lagrange Park in France, because she wore a bikini in a public park, has sparked outrage on social media.
The 21-year-old victim, Angelique Slosse, was beaten up by a gang of reportedly Muslim young women. It had been claimed the attack in Reims, eastern France, was motivated by the disgust at the ‘immoral’ outfit offending the religious beliefs of the alleged attackers.
Three of those arrested were named as Ines Nouri, Zohra Karim and Hadoune Tadjouri, who are in their late teens and early 20s, while two others – aged 16 and 17 – cannot be named because they are minors.
Thousands across France joined the campaign on Twitter, posting photos of themselves wearing swimsuits in public places.
