Did we hear about this?
This happened on French soil where the French Prime minister and ours says we need to embrace other cultures
It all started when a tourist took a picture of a muslim woman wearing a “burkini” at the beach.
When relatives of the muslim woman objected, a group of local teenagers came to the photographer’s defence.
Local reports said that a group of North African men armed themselves and took on the young Corsicans.
After bottles & stones were thrown by both sides, the fight escalated when the teenagers’ parents rushed from their village to the beach where one of them, a man of Czech origin but resident in Sisco, was wounded by a harpoon while defending his son. A pregnant woman was also reported to be injured. In retaliation, villagers then set fire to cars belonging to the muslims.
But it wasn’t over yet. A crowd of around 500 gathered in the nearby town of Bastia and tried to enter a housing estate with a high immigrant population. They chanted: “To arms, this is our place and we will go where we want!”
