A pregnant Muslim woman has miscarried her baby after she was reportedly attacked in Paris for wearing a veil.
The unnamed 21-year-old was four months pregnant when she claims she was attacked by "skinheads" in the suburb of Argenteuil.
Her lawyer, Hosni Maati told AFP she had been kicked in the stomach and later miscarried.
A police source involved in the investigation said it was aware of the miscarriage, but did not confirm the attack was the cause of the woman losing her baby.
The woman blamed the attack on two “skinheads”, claiming the men “ripped the veil” from her head and tore part of her clothing, The Local reports.
It adds French daily Le Parisien said police sources had some concerns over “inconsistencies” in her account.
