A French magazine reports that Afghan asylum seekers beat up a 33-year-old woman ‘for being too lightly dressed’
Voice of Europe translated the story.
The assault happened on a train leaving Paris. The men taunted and insulted the woman for not being dressed enough to suit them.
The attack on 23 May started with verbal insults. The Afghans were reprimanding the woman for ‘showing too much cleavage’. After the train stopped at Dijon’s train station, they forced her out. The woman was kicked and beaten until she fell to the ground.
The Afghan asylum seekers, 19 and 23 years old, were arrested at the train station and will be judged by France’s criminal court in the next few days. Both men live in Dole, in France’s Jura region.
