Muslim woman miscarries after attack

Tuesday, the lawyer for a pregnant Muslim woman targeted in a street attack announced she had miscarried due to her injuries. On Thursday, two men in the Argenteuil region in France assaulted her, ripping off her headscarf and cutting her her hair while yelling slurs. At one point, the woman, four months pregnant, was kicked in the stomach. A separate incident on Saturday in a different region of France saw six Chinese youths harassed with racial epithets, which led to a protest in Beijing.
