France: Woman Beaten By Uncle for Not Observing Ramadan
by Cheradenine Zakalwe
Saturday, around 9.15 pm, rue François-Cordon, in Kerourien, Brest, police were called by a young woman, 18, who took refuge in her bedroom to protect herself from her violent uncle. The family, originally from Mayotte, is celebrating the end of Ramadan.
But the uncle, who is passing through on the occasion of the celebration, violently rebukes his niece for not having observed this religious fast. He strikes her several blows with his fist and a broom. The police intervene. They are met by around 15 members of the family, mostly men, who try to prevent the police from entering.
