A French woman and her three young daughters were seriously wounded in a knife attack at an Alpine resort on Tuesday by a man who reportedly complained that they were scantily dressed.In other words, the district attorney's adding insult to injury for the victims. But as the article goes on to say:
The man was arrested after the attack at the Alpine resort of Garde-Colombe, near Laragne, in southern France.
The youngest girl, aged 8, was rushed to hospital in Grenoble with a punctured lung, according to initial reports.
Her mother, 46, and sisters aged 12 and 14, were being treated at the hospital of Gap, closer to the scene of the attack. Their injuries were serious but not life-threatening, hospital sources said.
Initial reports claimed the man struck because he was angered by the women being "scantily dressed," but a local prosecutor denied this.
The attacker, named as Mohamed B, 37, "may have acted out of religious motives", French television channel TF1 reported.So he was acting as a "public moralist", and he even had a record for petty crimes. The worst part is that the mother had helped him earlier when he was allegedly ill, and this is how he returned favor. And the DA is actively participating in downplaying the seriousness of the issue.
Despite the prosecutor's denial, TF1 reported that he was angry that the girls were wearing shorts.
