Pregnant Muslimah Miscarries After Encounter With Islamophobes

Color me skeptical. Sounds like another faked 'hate' crime to me.

From The Local:

A young pregnant Muslim woman, who was allegedly attacked in the street for wearing a veil has lost her baby, her lawyer announced on Monday. [...]

A police source involved in the investigation also confirmed the miscarriage to AFP but did not confirm that the attack was the cause of her losing the baby.

In reporting the attack to police she described how she was set upon on Thursday morning by two men in the middle of the street, just after she had finished talking to her mother on the telephone.

She initially blamed the attack on two "skinheads", saying the two men "ripped the veil" from her head and tore part of her clothing.

The prosecutor for Pointoise, Yves Jannier, also said the woman had been kicked in the hip before she managed to flee.

French daily Le Parisien said police sources had some concerns over "inconsistencies" in her account.

I'm not sure what the reporter means by "initially." It implies that the story may have since changed. The article doesn't say if it did, but that may be one reason the police had concerns about her claims.
