Girl who cried wolf over hate crime could be charged with filing false report
A young Muslim girl who claimed she had been the victim of a hate crime at a train station and pushed onto the tracks has been accused of making it all up.
The 14-year-old, named only as Sinem, claimed on social media that she had been called a "terrorist" and was then pushed onto the tracks by a stranger who had taken offence at her headscarf at a railway station in the Austrian capital of Vienna.
She wrote on an online anti-discrimination and racism group that she was saved in the "last seconds" by another stranger who pulled her back onto the platform before a train pulled in.
