Pregnant Muslim woman attacked in Paris loses baby
She was taken to Argenteuil hospital where she underwent treatment for injuries.
Daily Mail reported that the police said that the men had shouted racist insults at the woman, saying that the veil was no longer acceptable in France.
“Her husband called me this this afternoon. She lost the baby,” the lawyer told AFP news agency. He added that the family were devastated by the tragedy and would not be making any further comment.
French police officer involved in the investigation confirmed to AFP that she lost her baby.
The prosecutor for Pointoise, Yves Jannier, also said the woman had been kicked in the hip before she managed to flee.
In a related incident, another Muslim woman wearing a headscarf was also attacked three weeks ago in the same region of Paris.
