More than fifty anti-Muslim attacks were recorded in France since the terrorist attack against Charlie Hebdo, announced the Observatory against Islamophobia of the French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM).
According to the president of the observatory Abdallah Zekri, citing figures from the Ministry of the Interior, 21 violent acts (shots, grenades launched …) and 33 threats (letters, insults, etc.) have been recorded since Wednesday, The Journal reported.
This count is still incomplete, said the Muslim leader, who said he was “outraged” by the numbers “unheard of” in less than a week.
The figures were released following a recent wave of terrorist attacks in France which began on January 7 when the office of Charlie Hebdo came under assault by two gunmen. Some 12 people were killed in the incident.
The terror attacks have drawn widespread condemnation from Muslims in France and the entire world.
