Families attacked in southern France as 'women were wearing shorts'
by Henry Samuel
Two families on a cycle ride in Toulon, southern France, came under violent attack after assailants hurled insults at two female partners for wearing shorts, according to prosecutors.
The attack, carried out by a group of youths from a housing estate in the Mediterranean port town, has sparked claims that parts of France are prey to an Islamist "morality police".
Two couples with their three children and a friend were on a Sunday afternoon outing on bikes and roller blades when the "incredibly violent" attack took place, according to Var Matin, the local newspaper.
