French racist couple found guilty of attacking young Muslims

Press TV – August 8, 2012

A court in France has convicted a couple of attacking a group of young French Muslims in the southern city of Aigues-Mortes.

The couple opened fire on a number of young Muslims who were holding Iftar dinner in a parking lot during the holy month of Ramadan.

The man was given a four-year sentence while his wife was sentenced to 2 years in prison for assisting him in reloading his weapon.

The prosecutor described the shooting rampage as “manhunt,” witnesses say the assailants have made racist comments as they launched the attack.

The development comes as a town council in southwestern France fired four Muslims hired to work in a summer sport camp for fasting during Ramadan.

The men employed by the town council of Genevilliers just outside Paris were dismissed on July 20, the first day of Ramadan, under the pretext of endangering the children’s safety by not drinking or eating from dawn to dusk.
